After initial inquiries failed to identify an offender, police are appealing for witnesses who may have images or footage of a serious assault at the Lost Village festival 2017.
The victim received extensive injuries which include a fractured eye socket and trauma to her spine.
Police hope that someone who attended the festival can help with our search to identify the person responsible and we would like to hear from anyone who witnessed this, or has any photographs or video from around this time. They believe the suspect was seen throwing blue powder around shortly before the assault took place.
Alongside the organisers of the festival, police are searching through the official photographs and video with the intention of identifying the perpetrator of this vicious assault.
The suspect is described as white, in her mid-20s, with dark brown or black shoulder length, curly hair. Her build was described as medium to heavy and she was wearing a green and black large square checked dress and glasses.
Detective Sergeant Wynn, the Investigating Officer, said; “This assault has had a devastating effect on the victim. We will search all of the photographs and video available to us and speak to witnesses to identify the assailant. I would appeal directly to the other woman involved in this attack to get in touch; this like all investigations is a search for the truth.”
