Woman “punched in the head” in car park at Yeovil Asda

A WOMAN was punched in the head a number of times during an attack at the Asda car park in Yeovil.

The incident happened at the site, off Preston Road, at around 5pm on Thursday, April 4.

A man – described as white, in his 20s, with short dark blond hair, slim and approximately 5ft 10ins – is reported to have assaulted the victim after an incident when they were both driving.

“We understand he punched the woman in the head on a number of occasions, before leaving the scene in a black or dark blue Volkswagen Golf,” an Avon & Somerset Police spokesperson said.

“The woman was treated for concussion at Yeovil District Hospital and also sustained bruising.”

A 26-year-old man attended a voluntary police interview in connection with our enquiries last month.

Police want to hear from anyone they have not yet spoken to, who may have information regarding the incident, on 101, quoting reference number 5224086105.
