A 29-YEAR-OLD man was taken to hospital after being assaulted in Stroud.

The victim was driving along Home Orchard at 7.40pm on Tuesday, March 18 when the incident happened.

He had stopped to wait for a silver Vauxhall Astra or Vectra estate car parked on the left-hand side of the road to move as the road was too narrow for him to pass.

After the victim had passed the car he saw a man run towards him.

The offender then swore at the victim before hitting him – causing injuries to his cheek and eye which needed hospital attention.

The offender is described as white, male, around 6 feet tall and in his 20s.

He was wearing a dark coloured baseball cap, a navy blue coloured zip-up hooded top, dark coloured jeans and white trainers. He had an accent described as not from Gloucestershire.

Anyone with information should call police on 101 quoting incident number 429 of March 18.
