A brave 22-year-old woman hit a man in the face and fled after he got out of his car and grabbed her by the arm in Cam, near Dursley, police have revealed today.
Officers investigating the incident which happened on Tuesday (October 31) have issued an e-fit image of the wanted man, who is described as being white, middle aged with greying hair and a local accent.
"The man had been driving a red car along Dursley Road, near the junction with Springfield in Cam when he pulled the vehicle over and asked the woman pedestrian for the time," said a Gloucestershire Police spokesperson.
"He then mounted the pavement in front of her to block her path, exited the vehicle and approached the woman.
"The man grabbed her by the arm. She hit him in the face and left the area.
"The incident happened at around 4.15pm and it is not known what direction the man left in. It is understood that he did not follow her.
"Enquiries are taking place and police are keen to hear from anyone who recognises the man from the e-fit image or who lives in the surrounding area and may have information which could help.
"In particular, investigating officers are asking people to review their dashcam and home footage between the times of 4pm and 4.40pm on Tuesday, in case it has captured anything which could assist."
