Felixstowe: Duo wanted as police investigate ‘road rage’ assault

09:39 04 February 2014

A man in his 50s was assaulted by two motorists in a “road rage” incident, police have said.


Witnesses are sought following the common assault in Stanley Road, Felixstowe, at around 1.05pm on Friday.

The 59-year-old man was driving in Leopold Road when a silver/blue Vauxhall Astra vehicle, with two men inside, swerved out in front of him.

The victim sounded his horn before both cars pulled over in Stanley Road. Both drivers pushed over the victim. One is described as white, in his 20s to early 30s, around 5ft 6ins tall with dark hair. The other is black, of a similar age, around 6ft 2ins tall with short dark hair. Call police on 101.
