A WOMAN has been charged following a brutal city centre assault which left a victim in hospital.

Bibi Stone, 38, will appear before magistrates on Monday to face accusations of causing grievous bodily harm, burglary and criminal damage.

Alex Potter, 32, is yet to be arrested and police have released an appeal in a bid to track him down.

He is described as having dark hair and stubble but should not be approached by any members of the public who see him.

Instead, the public should contact the police on 999 and quote incident number 470 of April 13.
