Police are looking for the man who attacked a woman after being involved in a fender-bender in a midtown grocery store parking lot.

The Omaha Police Department released surveillance video of the attack Wednesday in hopes someone might be able to help identify the suspects.

They say the attack happened around 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12 in the parking lot of the SuperMercado at 29th and Leavenworth streets.

Investigators say the victim’s car was hit by a white Hyundai, but the driver didn’t acknowledge the collision and made her way into the store.

While the woman was in the store, the victim went to photograph the license plate of the suspect vehicle, but was attacked by a passenger who also took her cellphone.

Surveillance video appears to show the man push her down on the ground twice before fleeing in the vehicle, giving her a broken wrist, according to police.

Investigators ask anyone with information to call them at (402) 444-STOP.
