Police are appealing for witnesses to an incident of criminal damage that occurred in Bridgnorth on Sunday 7th September.
The incident took place at the Severn Car Park at around 7:15 pm on the 7th September. The victim, a 24-year-old man from Wolverhampton, was walking his dog along with another man when he was approached by an unknown female who became verbally abusive with him.
Both men went to leave the area when they found their vehicle, a Silver Ford Fiesta, had been surrounded by a group of 6-7 men and women of mixed ages. The group proceeded to push and kick the victim’s car, one member of the group picked up a large metal bin and threw it against the car causing damage to the driver’s side panel and glass. Another member also threw what has been described as a house brick through the windscreen of the car, completely destroying it. Throughout the attack, members of the group shouted homophobic slurs at both the victim and the man with him.
The initial female was white and described as around 40-years-old, short in height with ginger hair which was tied back. At the time of the attack, she was wearing a white blouse with a knee length skirt. One of the men in the group was described as around 40-years-old, of average build with short blonde hair.
