Police are appealing for information after a disabled woman was attacked in Exmouth on Saturday night.

Police say the incident happened in Salterton Road on June 28 between 10.30pm and 11pm, when a male suspect got out of a car and carried out an unprovoked assault on the woman, who is in her 50s.

The suspect, who is not known to the victim, then got back in the car, which drove away.

The victim was taken to hospital with bruising and swelling to her face.

Police say the suspect was white, of medium and muscular build, around 6ft tall, in his mid-to-late 30s, wearing a denim jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101, quoting crime reference number CR/085484/14.
