Appeal following serious assault Wrexham
Wednesday 02 Jan 2019
North Wales Police are appealing for information following a serious assault in Wrexham.
On Sunday 30th December Jade Daniels spent the evening socialising in Wrexham town. At the time, Jade who is 4ft 11ins tall, of slight build with dark hair, was wearing a green Calvin Klein T shirt, white ripped jeans and black flat ankle boots.
At some time before 1:30am on the morning of 31st December Jade made her way to Abbot Street and entered a fast food takeaway before walking towards home along Charles Street and Holt Road.
While on Holt Road, near the intersection with Montgomery Road, a man, who Jade describes as white with dark hair and a dark beard, approached her and asked her for a chip. A female, believed to be in his company and described as having long dark hair, then hit him before attacking Jade and causing serious injuries, particularly to her face.
At this time there appears to be no motive for this woman’s actions, but both the woman and the man may have been in Jade’s company for some minutes before the attack took place.
Following the assault Jade made her way home on foot before seeking medical attention later in the morning. Officers were notified of the incident in the early afternoon and a team of detectives immediately assigned to the investigation.
DCI Gary Kelly said; “This kind of attack on a lone female late at night is thankfully a rare occurrence in Wrexham and it is one that we take very seriously.
“We are working with Jade and her family to do all that we can to identify the exact circumstances and those responsible.
“I am appealing for anyone who may have seen Jade in the company of a couple from 1.am on New Year’s Eve in the vicinity of Brooke Street, Charles Street and Holt Road to contact my team.
“This was a vicious and sustained attack on an innocent and vulnerable young woman. Those responsible must be identified and I would urge any motorists and taxi drivers who were in the Holt Road area at the time and who may have ‘dash cam’ footage, to make contact with us.
“I would also ask anyone with information not to bother Jade or her family at this difficult time, but to contact Detective Sergeant Andrew Hughes at Wrexham CID on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 quoting reference W185648.
