Big Brother star Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace is appealing for witness and help to find a "thug" who she has accused of brutally "battering" her on Friday night (December 8).
The 38-year-old was heading home from a night out in Shoreditch, when she was "punched repeatedly" in the back of a car by a man who was giving her a lift back to North London. Writing on Twitter, she appealed to followers: "Please help me find this thug."
Speaking to The Sun Online about her ordeal, the 38-year-old reality star said: "My head is in a lot of pain, I have bumps in my hair, but I'm so lucky that I don't have a mark on my face, he was punching me repeatedly.
"I'd gone to a bar in Shoreditch and both of my girlfriends' taxis came, they offered to wait with me, but I told them it was fine for them to go.
"So a guy who I was with said he'd wait for me and make sure I was ok, but when the taxi didn't come and it was absolutely freezing, he said, 'Let me see if my friend will drop you as he's going to north London.
"When we went around the corner to ask, he said, 'OK', but didn't really want to, so I got into the back of this car that only had two doors – so I was stuck behind the guy that started hitting me.
"He moved his chair back and told me to move. So I moved, then he said: 'Move you f**king slag', so I told him to 'f**k off', then he turned around, undid his seatbelt and started battering me, it was horrific."
Aisleyne continued: "There were four men in the car, I was in the back, when the attack happened there was only one guy trying to help me, one of the other guys was saying, 'Hit her, go on, hit her, let him hit her', which made it even more scary.
"So the driver pulled over and they all got out the car, they were shouting at me to get out the car, but I couldn't, I was crying, I was saying, I need my phone. I think I was scared to get out the car.
"Then I heard police cars coming and I thought, 'Thank god'. I thought they were going to stop for me, but they didn't."
Aisleyne says a woman saw everything from the pavement, and is pleading with her to come forward.
