A woman was viciously attacked by another woman after she had been asked to move the car she was in because it was blocking a busy Birmingham road.

The assault happened outside the Shalil Food store in Wellington Road, Handsworth Wood.

The 44-year-old victim's route was blocked by a grey VW Tournan, which had a woman in the passenger seat.

The driver was met with a barrage of verbal abuse after she asked the passenger how long she was going to be.

The male driver of the VW was shopping nearby.

After the victim found another route, parked and began shopping the Touran passenger launched the furious assault, grabbing her hair and dragging her across tables outside the store.

The woman, described as white, in her early 20s, with long brown hair tied back in a pony-tail, and wearing a black vest top and grey tracksuit bottoms, then went to nearby shop and returned to see the woman noting down the vehicle registration number.

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.

The incident happened at around 1pm on Wednesday 30 July. Police released the CCTV on Saturday September 20.

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."

Anyone with information should call police at Birmingham West and Central on 101 or call Crimestoppers confidentially on 0800 55 111.
