A DVD seller was left in a coma after she argued with a potential customer in Downham.

The incident happened on April 5 between 12.45pm and 1.15pm when the 43-year-old oriental woman offered to sell a DVD to a passer-by.

Police say the man claimed he had no money and she got into his car to drive to a cashpoint.

During the journey, a disagreement broke out, and she jumped out at Moorside Road, leading to a struggle resulting in her hitting her head on the ground.

She was taken to hospital by ambulance and remains in a critical but stable condition.

The man is described as in his 20s, black, around 6ft tall, of athletic build, wearing a dark grey tracksuit.

A 23-year-old was arrested and later released on bail.

If you can help, call 020 8284 8468 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Oh that poor man, having to put the horrible woman in a coma! She forced him to buy her illegal film and then forced him to nearly kill her ...good job she got what was coming to her. Now the naughty police have arrested that poor innocent man, because he only wanted to give her a lift to the bank, she forced him to put her in a life threatening condition. Wow.... did someone reintroduce the death penalty in the last 24 hours or the Star Chamber maybe??

Maybe it was a race attack due to her ethnicity. I hope the police haved considered this after all the allegation of racial incidents.

Why does anyone bother buying these DVD's anyway?
With a home computer and internet access you can find all of the films yourself.
I'm not saying we should all start illegally downloading films and music but if you are going to buy the pirate DVD's isn't it better to get them yourselves then to put money directly into the hands of people smugglers?
