Police are appealing for witnesses following an alleged road rage incident where a lone woman driver was assaulted by a man.

The man was in a silver Volkswagen Golf which stopped in front of the woman’s vehicle in Beeston Road, Dunkirk, just off the Dunkirk island, at about 2pm on 13 February 2017.

He got out of the car and hit the woman several times in the face. She sustained bruising and was left shaken by the incident, but did not require hospital treatment.

The man was described as black, 6ft-tall, in his 40s and was wearing a black jacket.

Officers are appealing for witnesses, particularly anyone who may have taken video footage on their mobile phone, or anyone with dash-cam footage, to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 403 of 13 February 2017.
