Shortly after the Wishing Well pub, a man driving a car in front of her stopped, walked over to her Skoda, and assaulted the woman.
The woman received injuries to her face and visited hospital later for treatment. She was left upset and scared by what happened.. No one else was travelling in the Skoda.
