Appeal after a woman is allegedly assaulted following dispute at a petrol station in Matlock

Posted on 6th December 2017

We’re appealing for information after a woman allegedly had her leg slammed by a car door following a dispute between drivers at a petrol station in Matlock.

The incident happened at around 3.45pm on Sunday, November 26 at Sainsbury’s on Cawdor Way.

A woman had left her car near to the air pump to go into the shop when a man driving a white van pulled up and asked if she was moving her car and swore at her.

When she returned from the shop the same man allegedly came up to her, opened her car door and grabbed the keys before throwing them back into the vehicle and slamming the car door on her leg.

Were you on the petrol station forecourt around that time? Did you see or hear the dispute?
