POLICE are appealing to the public for information after the "cowardly" assault of a pregnant lady, her husband, and their two-year-old child.
Around 6pm on November 22 a 38-year-old man, his 34-year-old pregnant wife, and their daughter were standing near their stopped vehicle in Carrington Street, Horseshoe Bend.
