Thurrock Gazette: Road closed after female driver attacked by passenger travelling in another car Road closed after female driver attacked by passenger travelling in another car

A MOTORIST was punched in the face "several times" during a vicious attack by a man who had been travelling in a car behind.

The female driver of a white Range Rover, aged in her 20s, was heading down West Road, approaching the junction of Arisdale Avenue in South Ockendon when she slowed to queue in traffic.

A male passenger, travelling in the car behind with another male, got out.

He approached the woman's car and punched her in the face several times.

He then returned to the car, which sped off towards the M25.

The horrifying attack took place shortly before 9.30am today [Wednesday].

A police spokesman said: "The woman, in her 20s, was treated by paramedics for minor injuries and shock. She has provided police officers with a statement.

"CCTV in the area is being reviewed. It is unclear at this stage what the motive is behind the attack.

"Anyone with information is urged to contact detectives at Grays police station on 101."

West Road was closed at the junction with Arisdale Avenue but has since reopened.

Lock yourselves in your cars when you are alone. There are 2 stories in the Gazette about people being attacked in their cars. I always lock myself in when on my own ever since i saw a gang attacking a couple with a knife many years ago.

Most cars nowadays lock when the engine is started also all doors and boot can be locked very easily from the inside. I am not condoning what happened here, but I don't think we have the full story.
