A DRIVER who stopped his car on the A12 and began punching another car is being sought by police.

The road rage incident happened on the A12 near Stratford St Mary at the section of the road where speed cameras are being installed and close to the Dedham junction.

A spokesman for Suffolk Police said: “Police are appealing for witnesses after an incident of road rage in Capel St Mary.

“The male driver of a green coloured Mercedes flashed his headlights and honked his horn at the driver of a green Volvo whilst driving along a section of roadworks.

“The Mercedes driver overtook, but then pulled in front of the Volvo and stopped his vehicle, causing traffic to come to a standstill.

“The male driver of the Mercedes got out of the vehicle and began swearing and punching the victim’s car.

“The offender got back in his vehicle and sped off.”

The extremely dangerous incident happened at about 6.30pm on Sunday, February 15.

Police want to speak to anybody who saw the man who were caught in the traffic or anyone who saw the incident while passing on the other side of the road.

Fortunately traffic was travelling at a slower speed than usual due to the roadworks and nobody is believed to have been hurt.
