Woman robbed in 'vicious' attack in Cambridge

A woman was left needing hospital treatment in what police have described as a "vicious" attack in Cambridge.

Police said a man approached the foreign student in her 40s as she walked home in the early hours of Saturday after leaving friends on Parker's Piece.

He offered to help her find her way home and as they reached an area of Stourbridge Common he attacked her.

The man then made off with her bag containing valuables and cash.

The woman managed to flag down a car and was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital where she was treated. She was later discharged.

Her attacker is described as white, aged about 25 with straight blond hair, blue eyes and of slim build.

He was wearing a yellow, vertically-striped long-sleeved top and white trainers.

Det Con Peter Rivers, from Cambridgeshire Police, said "This was a vicious attack which has been extremely upsetting for the victim.

"Any information, however small, could help us bring the offender to justice."
