Police are investigating a report that a woman was assaulted by a Mercedes Benz driver, who went on to rip a dash cam from her car before driving away.

The victim was driving a silver Peugeot on the B1190 in Washingborough, in the direction of Branston Booths, near the Five Mile Lane junction, at around 10.45pm on Friday, June 23 when she was overtaken and clipped by a silver Mercedes Benz estate.

The driver of the Mercedes Benz is reported to have sped away but then appeared to slow down, braking in front of the Peugot and causing her to stop.

The driver of the Mercedes Benz walked to the driver’s side of the Peugot and assaulted the driver before ripping the dash cam fitted in the car.

Police say he returned to his car and drove away with the dash cam. The victim is said to have been left extremely distressed.

The driver of the Mercedes Benz is described as a white male, 5 feet 9 – 10 inches tall, in his 30s, with short hair or bald.

He is described as average build possibly wearing a red t-shirt.

Police added that the Mercedes Benz also had a woman passenger who also got out of the vehicle, described as late 20s to early 30s, of average build and may have been pregnant. She was wearing a pink tank top and had her dark hair tied in a bun.
