Woman assaulted in toilets at Royal Ascot
A 26-year-old woman from Coventry was assaulted in the toilets at Royal Ascot yesterday (Thursday).
Two women aged 31 and 32, both from Worcestershire, were arrested on suspicion of assault after the woman suffered minor cuts and bruises and were released on bail until July 27.
A 22-year-old man from Worcester Park, Surrey, was given a caution for assault.
Two men aged 21 and one man aged 24, all from Camberley, were arrested on suspicion of possession of counterfeit £20 notes.
The 24-year-old man and one of the 21-year-old men were released on bail until September 21. The other man was released without charge.
An estimated 55,000 racegoers are expected to attend the fourth day of Royal Ascot today (Friday).
Supt Steve Hockin, who is commanding the policing operation today, said: "We are very pleased with how Royal Ascot has gone so far. There have been no major concerns or issues for police at this time and crime levels appear to be low.
"There have been few issues in the night time economy and we continue to work with local licensees to prevent any incidents.
"I would like to remind those attending the event today and tomorrow that they are expected to drink responsibly and that they should not buy tickets from touts. We have been working hard to prevent touts operating in the area and if you do buy a ticket from one you could spend a lot of money and not be allowed entry to the racecourse."
