Motorist using mobile phone hands-free on March roadside assaulted by passing driver
A MAN needed hospital treatment after a motorist assaulted him at the roadside.
The incident happened at about 5.45pm on Friday January 28 in Badgeney Road, March.
A 50-year-old man had pulled over and was speaking on a mobile phone hands-free when he noticed a car had pulled up behind him and the driver was flashing his lights and beeping the horn.
The victim got out and approached the vehicle, a dark 4X4, where the driver began shouting and then got out and punched him.
As he picked himself up the victim saw a woman, who was also in the 4X4, getting the attacker back into the car and both drove away.
