Braintree: Efit Released Following Car Park Attack
Police have released an efit of a woman after another woman was assaulted in Braintree.
The victim was sat in her car in the car park of McDonalds at Galleys Corner on Saturday 2nd February when she accidentally leant on her horn.
This prompted a woman to get out of a Mitsubishi car and walk over to the victim's Ford Fiesta.
The suspect is then reported to have opened the car door and shouted abuse at her before attempting to drag her from the car causing her injuries to her head and face.
She then got back into her car and drove off.
The suspect is described as white, aged 20 to 40, with straight brown shoulder length hair. She was wearing patterned leggings with knee high black boots and spoke with a local accent.
Anyone who recognises the e-fit, or the description, or who has any other information about this incident is asked to call Braintree Police on 101 or ring Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
