Quick warning - I was assaulted this morning on Dacres Road, not too far from the Dietrich Bonhoffer church.
At about 07;00 a man hit me out of the blue, with no warning or provocation. He knocked me over and kicked me a few times, knocking me back down when I got back up and continuing to punch me. He didn’t try to take anything, and, fortunately, he didn’t cause any real harm.
He was in his mid to late 20s, slim, about 5’10", black, clean shaven (I think, though he’d knocked my glasses off before I got chance to take a proper look at his face), wearing a red furtrapper hat, and a blue jacket.
I got away thanks to a passing motorist stopping and allowing me to get her car between me and the attacker. I didn’t get her name or number , but I’m hugely grateful to her.
I drove around with the police for a bit, but we didn’t spot him - so be careful out there!
I’ve also heard that a guy matching my attacker’s appearance assaulted someone else near Dartmouth Road last month, but less violently. He may be getting more violent, which makes me worry for his next victim.

Shocking to hear, hope you are as OK as possible in the circumstances. Hope there is some local CCTV somewhere which can help police identify and get hold of this person asap.
