Pedestrian driven at in road rage attack
A pedestrian was driven at and repeatedly punched in a road rage attack.
The victim, aged in his 40s, was beaten after asking a speeding car to slow down.
He was waiting at a bus stop in Charles Avenue, Chichester, when he noticed a silver car speeding along the road. He signalled for it to slow down.
The driver of the car then stopped and reversed back towards the victim, stopping next to where he stood.
The car had three men inside. A blond haired man in the front passenger seat shouted at the victim. He then drove off but subsequently reversed the car back to the victim.
Two men got out of the car and one of them punched the victim to the side of his face, followed by a couple of other punches.
They then got back into the car and it was driven towards the victim who jumped onto the car bonnet to prevent being hit. The victim fell from the bonnet as the car was driven away.
The car is believed to be a five-door silver Mercedes.
Two of the men had blond hair and one dark hair.
The victim suffered from pain to his face and leg as a result of the incident.
PC Ben Hitchman said: "This was obviously a very distressing incident for the victim and we are appealing for anyone who witnessed this incident and heard exchanges of words between the three men in the car and the victim.”
Anyone with information should call Sussex Police on 101.
