The other man leant into the car, also hit her and then grabbed a carrier bag which contained toiletries, two T-shirts and a phone charger.
Detective Constable Paul Bolstridge, of Loughborough CID, said; "This lady was able to sound the horn of her car during the assault which may have drawn attention to the incident.
"She is understandably shaken by what has happened although thankfully not badly hurt.
"We'd like to catch the people responsible for this assault and would appeal to anyone who was in the area of Pinfold Gate, School Street or Cobden Street to contact us if they saw two men matching the description of the assailants either before, during or after the assault.
"They ran off along Cobden Street and we believe they may have run along Russell Street.
"This incident happened in the early evening when there are still lots of people in the area and we would appeal to anyone who thinks they might be able to help us to get in touch."
One of the men is black, 5ft 6ins, skinny and has short black hair. He was wearing a black leather jacket.
The other is thought to be Eastern European, 5ft 6ins and skinny. He was wearing a hooded top and a baseball cap.
Officers are carrying out house to house inquires and are looking through CCTV footage.
