Driver attacked on roadside

A MAN received hospital treatment after a motorist assaulted him at the roadside.

The incident happened at about 5.45pm last Friday (January 28), in Badgeney Road, March.

The victim, a 50-year-old man, had pulled over and was speaking on a mobile phone hands-free when he noticed a car had pulled up behind him and the driver was flashing his lights and beeping the horn.

The victim got out and approached the vehicle, a dark 4X4, where the driver began shouting and then got out and punched him.

As he picked himself up the victim saw a woman, who was also in the 4X4, getting the attacker back into the car and both drove away.

The victim was treated at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn for minor injuries.

The attacker is described as white, in his 40s and wearing dark clothing.

PC Dan Brain, who is investigating, said: “I would like to speak to anyone who saw this incident or thinks they might know who carried out the assault.

“I would particularly like to hear from a man who spoke to the victim shortly after the attack but did not leave details.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Brain on 0345-4564564, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800-555-111.
