Police in Northampton have appealed for witnesses after a cyclist was pulled from his bike and attacked by a motorist during a road rage incident in Northampton last week.
Officers say the driver, described as a stocky white man in his late 30s or early 40s and wearing a white vest top and jogging bottoms, punched the cyclist repeatedly in the head following a reported rush hour row on the busy Mill Lane between the suburbs of Kingsthorpe and Dallington.
The cyclist’s bike was also damaged during the confrontation, which occurred around 8am on 15 June.
“Between 7.50am and 8.05am a cyclist was pulled off his bicycle at the entrance of Thornton Park following an incident with the driver of a silver SEAT Alhambra in Mill Lane,” a Northamptonshire Police spokesperson said.
“Once on the ground, the driver got on top of the cyclist and repeatedly punched him, causing minor injuries to both his head and face.
“The bicycle also sustained damage during the incident.
“Officers believe the road may have been busy at this time of day and would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed or captured the incident on dashcam footage to contact them.”
Anyone with information can call Northamptonshire Police on 101, citing incident number 22000343740, or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Before the internet they wrote letters to local newspapers (RIP), I understand that green ink was compulsory.
UPDATE!! Some poor young man has been arrested due to this car taking a tumble. The good news is he was released on unconditional bail....
Aye! It's tough for drivers oop in t'North. In Lancashire, even the MOT testing garages can't afford MOTs!
Slow news day?

Maybe they'll employ some sniffer dogs? Note - it's the City of London rather than being London, the city which would be much better.
I would definitely recommend looking at the hase pino, they do a kit to put kid sized pedals on the front so your child can participate. But unlike...
The TQ HPR50 motor is so small that is must be rattling around inside that huge bottom bracket area. I suppose it is some kind of inflection point...
I use a cat ear. I'm profoundly deaf in the right hand side, and it helps with all round awarness with just the one ear.
