A woman confronted a man for filming her house before he launched into a racist tirade about her mixed-race kids and battered her on her own doorstep, leaving her eating through a straw.

Mum-of-four Reanne Aughton, from Sutton-in-Ashfield, Notts, described how her attacker made "disgusting" racist remarks about her mixed Caribbean kids, before punching her in the face and kicking her in the ribs between 11.30pm and midnight on August 28.

The thug then stamped on her hand causing her to scream out in pain before he fled the scene.

Reanne suffered broken ribs, a broken jaw and finger, a fractured cheekbone as well as bruising to her arms and cuts to her hands.

She said she even had to eat soup through a straw for days afterwards because of the swelling.

Reanne said: “I was taking the rubbish out when I saw the man at the bottom of my driveway who appeared to be videoing my house.

"I thought he was lost at first and I asked him if he was okay and why he was videoing my house.

“He came towards me and as he spoke I saw him curl his hand up into a fist as he punched me to the left side of my face, hitting my jaw.

"As I doubled over in pain he kicked me in the ribs which forced me to the floor.

"As I was on the floor trying to catch breath he stood over me and stomped on my hand. I screamed out in pain and then he ran off.

“The words that came out of his mouth were just disgusting and I believe were in reference to me having mixed-race children.

"Feeling frightened the man would return, I managed to pick myself up off the floor, despite being in a lot of pain, and ran inside the house, locking the door.”

Reanne went to hospital for treatment two days later.

She added: “I couldn’t eat properly for a few days after the attack and I had to have soup through a straw.

"The swelling and bruising has gone down but I’ve been told if my facial injuries don’t heal properly then I might need to have an operation.

“This whole incident has frightened me and left me feeling scared that this person may return. It has definitely left me feeling very weary of my surroundings and other people.

"I am also frightened as to why this person would record my house on his phone.”

Detectives have now launched an investigation and have been checking local CCTV since the attacl.

Reanne described her attacker as being white, about 5ft 7ins to 5ft 9ins tall, aged between 45 and 50, and of a muscular build.

He had a bald head and is believed to have a tattoo on his neck.

Detective Sergeant Dave Prest, from Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a shocking and unprovoked attack on Reanne which left her badly injured and extremely shaken."
