Appeal after road rage attack leaves victim with broken teeth

Posted on 6th March 2017

We’re appealing for information after a road rage incident in Newhall, in which the victim had several of his teeth broken.

It happened in Orchard Street, just off Parliament Street, at about 3.20pm on February 26.

The victim was driving his silver Vauxhall Vectra and had pulled up behind a parked car when a silver BMW pulled up alongside him.

The driver of the BMW shouted at the victim and then proceeded to get out of his car, walk up to the Vauxhall and open the driver’s door.

He then punched the victim to the face, causing a number of his teeth to be chipped or knocked out.

The attacker then drove off. He was white, aged between 25 and 30, of stocky build and about 5ft 11ins to 6ft 2ins. He was wearing dark blue jeans and a bright white top.

Anyone who recognises the description or how might know the person responsible is asked to call us immediately.
