Renewed Appeal After December Assault

It's after a woman was assaulted in Dover.

A 38 year old local woman was walking along the alleyway between Vancouver Road and Green Lane which is unlit when she was approached by a man who asked her for a cigarette lighter.  As she reached into her pocket the man hit her with an unknown implement.  She pushed the man away and ran off from him.

The man is described as white, aged 18-22, 5'10'' tall, southern accent medium build.  He had a pockmarked face.  He was wearing an Eskimo-type hat, dark coloured hoodie and dark coloured tracksuit bottoms.
