A young woman – badly beaten in a Peterborough street attack – could have been left there for up 90 minutes before an ambulance was called.

Cambridgeshire police said that the victim, a woman in her 20s, was attacked and left with serious injuries in Church Walk, Broadway, Peterborough, sometime between 5.10am and 5.40am on Saturday.

“We were not called until 6.45am when the ambulance service was called to the woman near Peterborough Regional College,” said a Cambridgeshire police spokesperson.

“The woman was taken to Peterborough City Hospital where she was treated for serious, but not life threatening, injuries and has now been discharged.

She said: “This was a nasty and sustained assault which left a young woman in hospital, and I am keen to find out exactly what happened and bring whoever is responsible to justice.

“I am appealing to anyone who was in the area of Church Walk at the time of the assault to get in touch.

“We have CCTV which shows a group of people walking along Church Walk. We do not think any of them were involved but they could have information crucial to our investigation.

“Anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, should please contact us.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 101, quoting incident 71 of 6 January, or report online at www.cambs.police.uk/report.

Police cordoned off Broadway and Park Road, Peterborough, following the assault.

It meant many businesses were forced to close for part of the day.
