Nottinghamshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information after a woman was taken to hospital following an assault in New Basford.

The incident happened in Duke Street around 8pm last night (Wednesday, October 25).

Officers are investigating the incident as an assault, and say it involved a "small red vehicle".

The woman received minor injuries, and was taken to hospital.

She has since been discharged, and no arrests have been made.

Paul King, of Mansfield, said he saw the woman on the floor as he drove past the area to go to the nearby climbing centre.

The 44-year-old said: "I was driving past and saw the girl on the floor. She looked like she was in a lot of pain.

"I jumped out the car and went over to her, and sat with her until the paramedics came.

"I don't know why it happened, but it was a very evil thing to do."
