On 17 July 2021 the West Chester Police received a single report of an assault that took place on the side of the roadway in the 1000 block of Downingtown Pike. This incident took place at approximately 1:00 to 1:15 PM.
A witness observed a white sedan pull off of Downingtown Pike as it appeared a domestic dispute was taking place in the vehicle. The vehicle stopped in the driveway of the PECO Bradford Substation which is just east of the Sugar's Bridge Nature Area and Trail (1085 Downingtown Pike). A white female believed to be in her twenties fled the vehicle. She was pursued by the male operator who punched her in the face, knocking her to the ground and dragged her back to the vehicle. The male was also described as a white male believed to be in his twenties and of average build.
Anyone who may have witnessed the assault or has any information pertaining to the investigation is asked to contact Sgt. Brad Bergey at 610-696-2700 or email@example.com.
