Katie Price ‘attack’: Man arrested on suspicion of assault re-bailed

The man who was arrested on suspicion of assaulting Katie Price has been re-bailed.

Katie, 43, was rushed to hospital after an alleged assault took place at a property in Little Canfield, Essex on August 23. 

An unnamed 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault and later bailed. 

Essex Police has confirmed to Metro.co.uk that the man has now been re-bailed until later this week. Sources also told The Sun that the police need additional time to investigate the incident and decide how to proceed. 

The insider claimed: ‘Police have asked for more time to get to the bottom of exactly what went on.

‘Investigators will continue to look into the night in question with a variety of forms of evidence to establish what happened before they make a decision whether they will charge the man in question or not.’ 

Shortly after the alleged assault, Katie described the attack as ‘unprovoked’ and said she had been ‘punched’ in the face while watching TV.

She said: ‘I’ve got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital.

‘I’m still all dazed. I’m devastated. I’ve told police that I was assaulted, and am in shock that this happened. I ran away after being punched.’ 

‘The fight was unprovoked — I was just sitting there watching telly when the assault happened.’ 

In recent weeks, Katie’s fiance Carl Woods has spoken out about the alleged incident and wrote in an Instagram post: ‘I have remained quiet until now due to the investigation being carried out by the police however I have found it so difficult to keep quiet on social media due to the speculation and shocking abuse that I have received. 

‘Anybody who thinks I hit Katie, you’re completely delusional and have no idea of the reality of this situation.

‘I have never and never would do anything to hurt Katie. The truth will be told.’ 

Essex Police previously said they were in ‘regular contact with the victim’ and were ‘continuing to support her’.
