Police are appealing for witnesses and anyone with information to come forward after an assault outside a supermarket in Blandford.
The incident happened at around 1.50pm on Wednesday 25 July 2012 in the car park of Morrison’s on West Street.
The victim, a 26-year-old woman from Birmingham, was unlocking her car when she was approached from behind and punched in the face, causing her to fall to the ground.
She suffered bruising and swelling as a result of the attack.

This was a callous and unprovoked attack on a woman while she stood by her vehicle.
Unfortunately we have no details of the suspect.
However, the victim was helped to her feet by a man who happened to be passing by at the time of the incident, but we have no further details of this person.
We are very keen for him and anyone else who may have witnessed this incident to contact Dorset police in confidence on the non-emergency number 101.
