Moments before, he had driven into the car park in a grey Suzuki Vitara. Once parked, a dispute took place with the occupants of a blue Mercedes 4X4.

One suspect is described as a white man in his early 40s, around 5ft 8ins, with a medium build. He was wearing a mustard-coloured jacket, blue jeans and tanned shoes.

The woman was said to be in her late 30s and around 5ft 2ins, with a medium build and brown hair in a long bob style. She was wearing a white t-shirt with blue jeans.

Investigators have looked at available CCTV of the incident – which happened at around 11.15am on Saturday, January 8 – and believe there are several people who may have witnessed the assault who are yet to speak with an officer. They issued a wider appeal for help today.
