Woman Sexually Assaulted While Walking Home in Hatfield Borough

Hatfield Township police ask for public's help in identifying two persons of interest after a woman was sexually assaulted while walking home from the Main Hotel

A woman was sexually assaulted while walking home from a Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, business last week.

The attack took place on East Vine and Berry streets in Hatfield early Friday morning, Hatfield Township police said Tuesday. The woman had just left the Main Hotel pub on Main Street and was in a residential area.

On Tuesday, police released the photos of two men — one with a backward hat and "USA" T-shirt and another in a green polo shirt — who were at the same establishment as the woman prior to the assault. Investigators called the men persons of interest.

The two men were shooting pool at the Main Hotel Thursday night, bar owner Greg Campbell told NBC10. They had been at the bar before and didn't seem to cause any troubles before the pub closed at midnight.

Campbell was unaware of any trouble until police came looking for the video.

The men haven't been back to the bar since Thursday, Campbell said.

The men are not considered suspects at this point but police do want to talk to them.

Anyone with information on the assault is asked to call Hatfield police at (215)-855-0903 or email them at policetips@hatfield-township.org.

NBC10 has a crew at the scene gathering more details.
