Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was punched while sitting in his car at Toby Carvery, Braintree.

The 40-year-old victim was sitting in his car in the car park outside Toby Carvery off the B1256 at Notley Cross at about 11.40am today, Thursday September 7.

He was approached by a man who opened the driver’s door and attempted to punch him. The victim was unhurt and drove off.

The suspect drove off in a white van towing a large caravan, which was last seen on the A120 between Braintree and Dunmow.

He was described as white, 6ft tall, of stocky build and aged in his late 40s. He had cropped blond hair.

Police want to speak to any witnesses, particularly an elderly couple who were walking in the area at the time and the driver of a Porsche.

They are asked to contact Braintree CID on 101.

Alternatively, contact independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org
