LOWER PROVIDENCE >> Police are looking for a suspect after a woman reported she was assaulted inside her car.
Officers responded to Town Center Drive at 4:35 p.m. Monday for a reported disturbance, according to a Facebook post from Lower Providence Police.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with a Phoenixville woman who reported that she was the victim of an assault. She explained that she had been traveling west on Arcola Road, when she accidentally cut off another vehicle as she was trying to enter the left lane. The operator of the vehicle she cut off followed her into the Wegmans Shopping Center onto Town Center Drive near Market Street, police said.
Once there, the unknown male pulled next to her vehicle and exited his vehicle. The male approached the driver’s side window, which the victim had partially open, and began yelling and cursing at her. Even though she apologized to him and pleaded with him to leave her and her kids alone, he reached in window and struck her in the face before fleeing the area, police said.
The suspect is described as an older heavyset white male with white hair. He was wearing glasses and a thin blue jacket.
The vehicle the suspect was driving is described as a newer black, four-door Chevrolet or Chrysler sedan possibly with tinted windows. The vehicle was last seen turning left at the Movie Tavern.
Police are asking that anyone with information on the incident or who can identify the suspect contact Officer Shilling at 610-933-7899 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
