Police are appealing for witnesses following a vicious road rage attack.

The incident in Wellington Road in Birmingham's Perry Barr at around 1pm on July 30, was caught on CCTV.

Police have released the footage in which the victim of the assault is seen walking along the street when her attacker lunges for her, grabbing her around the neck and hurls her into a table outside a grocery store.

She is then pulled to her feet before being thrown to the ground again, as bystanders look on.

According to police the attack followed a verbal altercation after the victim had earlier asked the attacker to move her VW Tournan which was blocking her car.

Following the assault, officers say the woman spotted the victim making a note of her vehicle registration, prompting her to attack her again.

The 44-year-old victim suffered a head injury and bruising following the assault.

PC Geraldine Sprigg, from West Midlands Police, 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 saw 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."

The road rage attacker is described as white, in her early 20s, with long brown hair tied back in a ponytail, and wearing a black vest top and grey tracksuit bottoms.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at Birmingham West and Central on 101 or Crimestoppers, confidentially, on 0800 555111.
