Thursday 2 August 2012
Airedale and North Bradford Police would like to speak to a man who may have witnessed an assault on a 14-year-old girl in or around the Harden Cricket Ground in St Ives, Bingley on July 14.
The incident took place at about 11am after the 14-year-old, who was walking with a 17 year-old-male and another girl aged ten, was allegedly pinned on the ground by the male following an argument.
It is believed a man walking his dog nearby witnessed the incident and threatened to call the Police before leaving the area in a car.
After he left, the girl was allegedly assaulted again and received a head injury before leaving the area to contact authorities.
A 17-year-old male has been arrested in connection with the alleged incident and bailed pending further enquires.
The dog walker or anyone else who witnessed the incident is asked to contact PC 4466 Jayne Harrison at the Airedale and North Bradford Suspect Management Unit on (01535) 615746.
