We are appealing for witnesses after a woman reported being grabbed as she walked past the Shepperton Recycling Centre on Friday evening.
The victim did not see her assailant, who grabbed her around the neck from behind. She broke free and ran from the scene.
The incident happened shortly between 8.30pm and 9pm. The woman called 999 on her return home and officers immediately responded. Shepperton residents might have noticed an increased police presence in the response as a result.
