Police in Essex are appealing for witnesses following an assault in the car park of Morrisons in Braintree Road, Witham.

The incident happened on August 9 at around 6pm, when a man in his 40s was involved in a verbal parking dispute with a man described as white, bald headed, muscular build, in his 40s and over 6ft tall.

The victim, who was driving a white van, was grabbed by the shoulder and wrist during the altercation.

The suspect was wearing a short sleeved white shirt, with blue pin stripes and blue jeans and it is believed that he had either very fair, or no eyelashes and eyebrows.

The suspect was driving a metallic blue Jaguar with the letters HUB, or similar, in the registration.
