Man charged after two people assaulted in Surrey

A 49-year-old man has been charged after two people were assaulted in Surrey on New Year's Day.

The incident in Heriot Road, Chertsey, in the early hours followed a verbal argument between a man and a woman.

A passerby who tried to intervene as the woman was assaulted was allegedly punched in the face.

The local man has been charged with two counts of common assault and bailed to appear before South East Surrey Magistrates' Court next month.
