At around 11am, a 46-year-old man driving a red Rover 216 along Dick Lane was overtaken and blocked by a dark coloured vehicle.

The victim was left with a fractured cheekbone.

The suspect, who drove away at speed towards the Thornbury roundabout, is described as Asian, 5’9” tall, with a moustache and short beard.

He was wearing a long black overcoat, black wollen hat and jeans.

“I am particularly interested in speaking to anyone who has seen the registration of this vehicle and can help us to trace it.”
