Police appeal after 'completely unprovoked' attack on woman

Police in Forth Valley have appealed for witnesses following a "completely unprovoked" assault on a woman in Camelon.

The woman was walking on Carmuirs Avenue at its junction with Mariner Road when a man walked past her, before turning back and assaulting her.

The incident happened between 17:00 and 17:30 on Friday 27 May.

The man was described as white, in his late 30s, about 5ft 8in tall, of medium build and with short fair hair.

He was wearing a dark blue zip-up cardigan with a red t-shirt underneath and dark jeans.

Det Con Grant Stronach said: "This attack was completely unprovoked and it's possible that someone witnessed this from a nearby house."
