Police in Derry are appealing for information following an assault that occurred in the Clooney Road area on the afternoon of Tuesday 19 May.

A 20 year old woman was assaulted sometime between 12.30pm and 2pm by a male while on the Clooney Road, between Gransha and the Maydown roundabout. The woman received injuries that required hospital treatment.

Constable McClarey said: “A 17 year old male was arrested and later charged with grievous bodily harm and two counts of common assault. He was due to appear at Londonderry Magistrates Court on the morning of Thursday 21 May, however we would still appeal for witnesses to this assault and I would ask anyone with any information about this incident to contact Public Protection in Strand Road Police Station on the non emergency number 101.
