Police are continuing their investigations and appeal to anyone who has any information which would assist their enquiries to contact 101 and pass the information to the Force Control Room.
Franklin Road attack
Police are appealing for information and possible CCTV footage after a 26-year-old woman reported being assaulted by a man in Harrogate in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The woman was walking alone along Franklin Road at around 3.30am on Saturday, when she heard footsteps close behind her. A man passed her, and then further up the road he jumped out from behind a parked car and threw her to the ground.
The victim managed to fight him off and he ran away in the direction of the town centre. The woman was not injured in the attack but was understandably left shaken.
