Police in Leeds are appealing for information to identify a woman they wish to speak to in connection with an assault on a cab driver.

The incident occurred on Monday 20 December in Armley at approximately 4pm.

It was reported that the suspect was picked up by a cab and refused to pay for the journey. The cab driver asked the suspect to leave the vehicle which resulted in the driver being subjected to racial abuse.

The suspect then assaulted the driver before exiting the vehicle.

The driver suffered minor injuries but is understandably shaken by the incident.

Officers have conducted several lines of enquiry but have not yet been able to identify the suspect.

Anyone who may recognise the woman seen in the footage is asked to contact Leeds District Police on 101 quoting crime reference 13210656838

Information can also be given to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
