An early morning row over fireworks led to a woman being assaulted in an unprovoked attack in Dunipace.

A 26-year-old woman had went outside from her Stirling Street home at around 3 a.m. on Sunday, November 9 to ask a group of people to stop lighting fireworks.

They are described as three men and three women in their late teens or early 20s.

The woman was subsequently assaulted by a male member of the group, causing bruising to her face.

The suspect is described as being between 5ft 8” and 6 ft in height, of medium build, with short dark hair and wearing a black hooded top with a white logo.

When asked by the victim, he stated his name was “Davie”.

The group made off in the direction of Denny town centre.

Police are appealing for anyone with information relating to the assault to come forward.

PC Alana MacPherson said: “While the victim of this assault suffered only a minor injury, this assault was unprovoked.

“Anyone who has information which may assist me can contact police on 101.”
