CCTV's been released of a woman being attacked in Birmingham after she'd asked someone to move their car as it was blocking the road.

The assault happened at around 1pm on Wednesday 30 July outside the Shalil Food store in Wellington Road, Handsworth Wood.

The 44-year-old woman was driving her Ford C-Max when she was blocked in the road by another car, a grey VW Tournan, which had a woman in the passenger seat, whilst the male driver had gone to the nearby shops.

The woman asked her how long they were going to be as she was unable to pass by, and was given abuse by the woman passenger of the VW Touran. The woman then went another route and parked nearby to go to the shops.

As she walked towards the shops, the passenger of the Touran got out, grabbed her by the hair, threw her over a table outside the grocery store, before pulling her to her feet by the hair again and throwing her on the floor.

She then assaulted her again, before returning back into her car with the male driver and driving away.

The 44-year-old woman suffered a lump to her head and bruising following the assault.

PC Geraldine Sprigg from Birmingham West and Central said: “This was an unprovoked and violent attack on a woman who had asked the driver to move her car which was blocking the road.

"The assault took place in the middle of the day and we are asking for anyone who say the incident or who recognises the woman driver to contact us. The woman assaulted suffered pain and discomfort following the attack and may have lost consciousness for a short time."
