A man has been charged with assault after a young woman was attacked as she walked into Norwich.

Police said the woman, who is in her late teens, was grabbed by a man who tried to pull her from the pavement on Carrow Hill at about 5.25am on October 13.

However, a passer-by intervened and the man ran off. The woman was uninjured.
