Woman punched in the face in an unprovoked attack at New Street Station tram stop.

PC Jon Riddell, from British Transport Police, is appealing for information following an unprovoked attack on a woman who had been sitting at New Street Station tram stop on Tuesday 10th January.

The woman, who is in her 30s, was sat at the tram stop, at around 7.30pm, when a man came and sat down beside her.

He then punched the woman to the left of her jaw and then followed up with another punch to the same side of her face.
