PO­LICE are hunt­ing a woman thug who punched a French tourist vis­it­ing Shake­speare’s Strat­fordupon-Avon af­ter telling him: “Wel­come to Eng­land”.

The 25-year-old woman left her 21-year-old vic­tim blood­ied and bruised af­ter thump­ing him in the face dur­ing the late night at­tack last week.

The stu­dent had been chat­ting with a group of peo­ple out­side a night­club in the pic­turesque War­wick­shire town when he was ap­proached by the woman.

She said “Wel­come to Eng­land” be­fore punch­ing him in the eye which broke his glasses.

A po­lice spokesman said: “The stu­dent was ap­proached by the woman, be­lieved to be around 25 years old, and she said ‘Wel­come to Eng­land’ then punched him in the eye.

“If any­one wit­nessed the at­tack or has any in­for­ma­tion could they please come for­ward.”
