Police are appealing for witnesses following a report of an unprovoked racially aggravated assault in Gloucester last night, Friday 17 February.
The incident happened between 5.30pm and 6.30pm on Weston Road as a man was parking his car.
As he got out of the car, he was approached by a man and woman who he did not know. The man began to shout abuse at the driver before assaulting him and walking off.
The driver was treated for his injuries at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, but they are not believed to be serious.
The man was described as being in his 50s, with short white facial hair and a receding hairline. He was wearing jeans, a grey quilted jacket and a cream coloured hat.
Officers are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident but who has not yet spoken to police, or who has any dash cam footage which they believe could be relevant, to come forward.
Anybody with information is asked to contact Gloucestershire Constabulary through the website, quoting incident 393 of 17 February: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/contact/af/contact-us/us/a-crime-that-has-already-been-reported/
