POLICE are appealing for information after an attacker broke a woman's finger and cut her in Newbridge.

The assault happened at around 3pm yesterday on Yewtree Road, off North Road in Newbridge.

The 27-year-old victim, who is from the area, sustained a small cut to her neck and a broken finger and went to the Royal Gwent Hospital for treatment.

The offender is white, in his early twenties, between five feet five and five feet six inches tall, thick set with black short cropped hair and of clean appearance.

He was wearing a bright white jacket, jeans, trainers, and had a Liverpool scarf hanging down from his waist down the back of his legs.

He approached the woman, assaulted her, then bent down to pick up whatever caused the injury to her neck and walked off.

Anyone with information is asked to call Gwent Police on 101 quoting log number 257 2/4/14.

Are you saying that because of the attack, or because he was wearing a Liverpool scarf? (albeit as some bizarre surrogate tail)

The police have been told to check cctv cameras at the bottom of doctors hill where he was spotted so he should be easy to identify.
