Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was assaulted following a road rage incident on the A428 near St Neots.

The 21-year-old victim was driving along the road, from St Neots to Cambridge, near Eltisley Manor, at about 7.30pm on Saturday (July 4) when a black Vauxhall Insignia overtook and drew level with him.

A car was coming the other way so the Vauxhall moved back into lane, colliding with the victim’s car.

Both cars pulled over and as the victim tried to call police he was punched twice in the face. The suspect then got back into his car with another man and drove off.

The attacker is described as being about 5’10”, 21 to 40, with short brown hair and had an Irish accent.
