A man has been arrested after reports that a pregnant woman was assaulted on Coney Street twice.

Police are appealing for witnesses after incidents involving a couple on the York city centre street.

Between 9.30pm and 9.50pm on Saturday May 5, a man and a woman who had a dog with them were seen arguing on Coney Street.

Police were called with a report that the man assaulted the woman as they walked along the street, and then again as they walked up New Street towards Davygate.

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “The woman was not visibly injured, however she is believed to be pregnant.”

Any witnesses to either incident are asked to contact North Yorkshire Police – details below.

A 23-year-old York man was arrested on suspicion of assault, and has been released on bail as enquiries continue.
