Witness Appeal After Worcester Road Rage Incident
Police in Worcester are appealing for witnesses to a road rage incident in which a woman's car door was damaged.
The woman was driving along Bromwich Road towards the city centre at 9.20am on Saturday (11 August) when she overtook a black Honda Civic, which is thought to have been travelling quite slowly, as though looking for an address along the road.
Following the overtake, the Civic (06 plate) then sped up and overtook the woman - who was in a black Vauxhall Antara - stopping in front of her at the traffic lights where Bromwich Road meets New Road.
The driver of the Civic then got out of his car and walked over to the woman in the Antara. He opened her door, swore at her and grabbed her keys from the ignition.
The man then walked back to his vehicle, throwing the woman's car keys on the floor as he did so, and drove off in the direction of Tybridge Street.
PC David Wood from Worcester police station said: "It would appear that the Civic driver has taken offence to being overtaken by the woman.
"The man is described as white, in his mid 30s, of a stocky build, with short brown hair. He was wearing a fawn coloured t-shirt and there was also a woman in a blue dress in the front passenger seat of the Civic.
"He has damaged the victim's car and I would urge anyone who witnessed the incident to come forward.
"A passing driver did stop to help the woman find her car keys, which the offender had thrown underneath the victim's car. However, this person left the scene before officers arrived, so we were unable to take their details.
"I would appeal to this person in particular to contact us as they may have some extra information which could help us with this investigation."
Anyone with information about this incident can contact PC Wood on 0300 333 3000, quoting 214S 110812, or contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
