A man's attempt to run a 30-year-old woman over with his car while she waited for a bus in Southampton was racially motivated, police have said.
The woman, wearing traditional Islamic dress and a head covering, was targeted at Lordshill Centre on 23 August.
The man drove up next to her in a red car and verbally abused her, before trying to mount the kerb in his car.
He then he drove off towards a nearby roundabout, before driving back towards the woman, who ran off, police said.
"The woman, from Southampton, ran into a nearby library to escape further abuse," a police spokeswoman said.
"She was uninjured, but was left shaken by the incident."
The man has been described as white, middle-aged, of medium build, with short brown hair and a round face. He wore a yellow top.
Officers said part of the registration number of the car he was driving was M214.
Police, who are appealing for witnesses, are particularly keen to hear from a woman who was at the bus stop during the incident and the driver of a car who was behind the car involved.
He beeped his horn when the vehicle attempted to drive onto the pavement.
