A man had two teeth knocked out during an attack in a supermarket car park.

His girlfriend was also punched in the stomach during the attack in the Farnham branch of Sainsbury's.

The incident was started by a minor collision between a van and a car.

The victim, who had been driving the car, was arguing with the van driver when a third man approached and threw him against a wall and hit him in the face, before punching the woman.
