Main article content
Police are appealing for witnesses following a suspected racially aggravated assault which took place in Cirencester last month.
It was reported that a takeaway driver was assaulted while in the car park of Kingsmeadow Services.
The victim stated that the assault happened at around 7.40pm on Wednesday 15 September after a disagreement over parking.
It is believed that the victim was sat in his car at McDonalds when three occupants from another car returned and hit his vehicle whilst opening the rear passenger door. The victim asked them to be careful when they began to racially abuse him.
The victim drove away and was followed down the road by the same group.
A few minutes later the car reverse rammed into his vehicle before two men got out. There was a conversation before they punched the victim which caused bruising and swelling to his eye and a large scratch on his arm.
A number of witnesses were at the scene, which was now near to Beefeater on Cricklade Road, with some calling out for the offenders to stop and officers are asking these people to come forward as they may have information which will help with the investigation.
CCTV enquiries have been conducted at both premises and investigating officers are also appealing for anyone who may have dashcam footage showing the incident.
