The A5

Police have launched a witness appeal after a man assaulted a woman while driving his car 'erratically' down the A5 in Milton Keynes.

At around 7am on Sunday 14th March, the pair were travelling in a black Audi A5 on the A5.

The man who was driving the car drove the car from the Old Stratford Roundabout onto the A5. When the car was on the A5, the man punched the woman and then stopped abruptly on the carriageway. The driver then started driving again. 

They travelled a while longer onto Foxcovert Road in Shenley, where the car had slowed and the victim - a woman in her 30s - jumped out of the car whilst it was still moving to escape.

Luckily, the victim did not suffer any injuries that required hospital treatment.
