Police are appealing for witnesses after a 75-year-old Craiglie woman was seriously assaulted in Port Douglas Last night

Police were called to Nautilus Street at 8.30pm on Friday after a woman was located injured in the street.

At approximately 6.30pm, the woman was walking along Nautilus Street towards Mitre Street when she was assaulted by two people.

The force of the assault caused the woman to fall to the ground, knocking her unconscious.
