Officers investigating an assault in Croxley Green have released a photo of a woman they would like to speak to as part of their enquiries.
It happened in Copthorne Road between 11.50am and midday on Wednesday, January 30.
The victim, a woman in her 30s, noticed a woman taking photographs of her property so went out to ask what she was doing.
However she became involved in a verbal altercation with her, when the other woman assaulted the victim by hitting her on the arm before walking away.
PCSO Steven Jacob, from the Rickmansworth and Croxley Green Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We are keen to trace the woman pictured as we believe she may have been in the area at the time of the assault and witnessed what happened, or have further information that could help progress our investigation.
