After a woman was assaulted in the street, a pair in a red automobile may hold the key.
Witnesses of a lady being assaulted by a guy are being invited to come forward with any information they may have.

There were no major injuries to the sufferer. There have been no arrests, and the investigation is still underway.
Further investigation has shown that two guys in a red car stopped near the scene of the incident and spoke briefly with the woman, who requested that they inform the police, before driving off towards St Helens town centre.
