A man punched and threatened a woman as she was delivering pizzas on Sunday.

She was driving a silver-coloured Honda Jazz car and pulled over at the junction between Gibson Drive and Lower Hillmorton Road, Rugby to check her phone at about 8.05pm

A man pulled up behind her and got out of a green vehicle believed to be an old style Mercedes. He told her to get out of her vehicle – and when she did, he demanded she hand over her money. When she refused to do so, he grabbed hold of her arm and then punched her twice to the chest. The woman managed to break away and get back into her car and drive away.

The attacker is described as being in his 30s, 5ft 11ins to 6ft tall, of medium build with a beer belly, scruffy brown hair over his ears, sporting a dark brown goatee beard and wearing a blue and white horizontal striped polo t-shirt and dark coloured corduroy trousers.

Any witnesses should call PC Claire Crouch from Rugby Local Investigation Unit on (01788) 541111 Ext 6137 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 where the information can be given anonymously.
