A £2,000 reward is being offered to catch whoever slashed a pregnant woman in the face with a blade in Cambridge.

The reward has been put up by charity Crimestoppers, after 29 year old vet Hayley Baker was attacked on the evening of Thursday 12 December.

She was attacked with a sharp object by a person, believed to have been a man, on Hertford Street shortly after 8.30pm.

The offender ran off towards Chesterton Lane leaving the victim with serious facial injuries following the unprovoked attack.

Cambridgeshire Police believe the attack could have been random.  

Crimestoppers is offering the reward of up to £2,000 for information passed to the charity’s 0800 555 111 number that leads to an arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this crime.

Ann Scott, Crimestoppers Eastern Regional Manager, said: "This violent attack on an innocent woman carrying a child is unthinkable. 

Not only has she sustained considerable injuries to her face, but it has caused unnecessary trauma and fear that may have longer term ramifications at a time which should be joyous in anticipation of the birth of her child.

Crimestoppers would urge anyone with information to contact the charity anonymously, safe in the knowledge that no one will ever know you contacted us." 

If you have any information on this incident please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our anonymous online form.
