“The type of person who would think nothing of assaulting members of our community for their own financial gain needs to be apprehended and brought to justice without delay.
“We have a team of detectives working on this incident and we’re appealing for the public to come forward with any information they have.
“Were you in the area at the time of the incident? Perhaps you saw a car matching that described.
“If you have any details that can assist our enquiries, please get in touch as a matter of urgency.”
