A man is being hunted after a woman was punched and kicked as she was robbed in her car on Main Street in Burley-in-Wharfedale last Friday.
The woman was waiting inside her car when an unknown man opened the passenger door and stole two mobile phones.
In the struggle, the woman was assaulted before the offender ran off with the woman’s husband and another man giving chase.
The robber is described as white, about 5ft 8 ins tall of slim build and in his thirties.
He was wearing a hooded top and was seen getting into a silver Ford Focus with a partial registration of YF54, which drove off towards Ilkley.
Detective Inspector Richard Partis of Airedale and North Bradford CID, said: “This attack left a young Asian woman very shaken and we would like the man who helped to chase the suspect to come forward, as he might have valuable information which could help us to trace him.”
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Airedale and North Bradford CID on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
