A 22-year-old man has been arrested following an incident on Monday which saw a 21-year-old Archaeology student from the University of York punched in the face three times.
The woman was approached by the man in the early hours of Monday morning whilst walking near Lawrence Street. She has since received treatment in York Hospital, and is not seriously injured.
North Yorkshire Police are now investigating the case further, having spoken to the suspect after a CCTV image was released on Tuesday. Whilst the man has been released on bail, the police have urged anyone with more information regarding the incident to contact them on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
