The victim was sitting in the passenger seat of a car outside the main entrance to the store. Two men in a vehicle parked alongside and a woman, who was standing next to the vehicle smoking, verbally abused the victim. The woman then hit the side of the victim’s vehicle.

When the victim got out of the car the woman racially abused her, told her to leave the country and pushed her.

One of the men, now out of the vehicle, grabbed the victim in a headlock and twisted her arm, leaving the victim struggling to breathe. The man then threatened the victim and spat in her face.
