Police seek driver over mystery of woman's movements
Main article content
Police are appealing for information in an attempt to piece together the movements of a woman who was assaulted in a car in Gloucester last month.
The woman was on her way home from a club in the city and was picked up by a white car in High Street at around 11pm on Saturday 24 October.
She challenged the driver about the route he was taking. He then slapped her in the face and, when she tried to ring her partner, he took her mobile phone and threw it into the back of the car.
The woman lost consciousness and, when she awoke, was lying on grass close to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. One of her boots had been removed and the driver was stooping over her.
She hit the man with her boot before running away. It is not believed that she had been sexually assaulted.
Officers need to track down the driver, who is described as being white, about 5ft 6ins tall, and of medium build. He had dark, short black hair with silver flecks.
