Police are now trying to identify another woman who they think can help with the ongoing investigation.

A spokesman for Epsom and Ewell Police said: “We're appealing for help to identify a woman who we believe may be able to help us with an ongoing assault investigation.

“The assault was reported to have taken place on Friday, 20 May, at around 10.20pm at The Assembly Rooms in Epsom, and involved the victim being left with multiple scratches on her face.

“If you know who this woman is or you have any information, please contact us quoting PR/45220053596 via webchat on our website surrey.police.uk, or calling us on 101.

“If you do not wish to leave your name, please call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

The pub where the incident occurred is one of the oldest in the area.

It dates back to the 17th Century as a health spa, but also housed a draper's shop, before it became a building society in the early 20th Century.

According to its website: “When the Assembly Rooms building was constructed in 1692 by two London based gentlemen, Thomas Ashenhurst and Michael Cope the bowling green was already there.

“The Epsom Assembly Rooms were one of the first to be built in England and the oldest surviving.

“They are also thought to be unique in their layout, which allowed for carriages to be driven and sedan chairs carried the full length of the downstairs central alley/courtyard.”
