Woman driver punched unconcious by man who ‘jumped out of the bushes’ in Stoke Poges

| April 12, 2019

A female motorist was punched unconscious during an assault in Stoke Poges on Monday 8th April 2019.

At around 10.15pm, a woman was driving her cream Fiat 500 along Templewood Road towards Stoke Poges when a man jumped out of the bushes in front of her car.

The woman thought that she may have hurt the man, so she got out of her car to ask if the man was OK. A second person then struck the woman on the head from behind causing the woman to fall to the floor.

The first man then punched the woman in the face, causing her to briefly lose consciousness. When the woman regained consciousness the offenders had fled the scene.

The woman then discovered that her bag, which had been in the foot well of her car, had been stolen.

As a result of the assault the woman suffered bruising to the left side of her face, a lump to the back of her neck and concussion. She was treated at the Wexham Park Hospital and has since been discharged.

The main offender is described as a mixed race man with an olive complexion, aged in his early to mid-twenties, about 5ft 5ins tall, medium build and clean shaven. He was wearing a dark beanie style hat, a dark hooded top with a silver badge on the left side of the chest and tracksuit bottoms that matched the jacket.

Police believe that it is possible the offenders left the scene in a black Audi saloon car.

Designated case investigator Hazel Brown, of the Investigation Hub based at Amersham police station, said: ‘This was an unprovoked assault that left the victim very shaken.

Thankfully, despite the nature of the attack, she was not seriously injured, but has had to have time off work due to the concussion that she suffered.

I am appealing to anybody that was in Templewood Road at around 10.15pm on Monday who believes they may have witnessed this incident or saw the offenders or a black saloon vehicle in the area, to contact the 24-hour non-emergency number 101, quoting reference number 43190106848.
