A woman was abused and assaulted last month by a man in what police say was a homophobic attack in a takeaway in Northampton.

The assault happened on Saturday 29 June 29 between midnight and 3am in Regent Square.

Officers have only appealed for witnesses today.

A woman was standing at the counter of Up All Night, waiting to order, when a man who was also ordering food started to abuse her.

Northamptonshire Police say he used homophobic language and then pulled and pushed her, injuring her head.

The man was white, with a “tanned complexion” and light brown hair, shaved at the back and longer on top.

He was aged between 25 and 35, clean shaven, with slightly broad shoulders. He was wearing a grey or brown polo shirt and blue jeans.

Witnesses or anyone with information can call Northamptonshire Police on 101.

Alternatively, information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
