A woman was left ‘extremely frightened and intimidated’ after a road rage incident in Chatteris.
Whilst attempting to lose the offender on Sunday (7), she was forced to break heavily and almost come to a complete stop.
Sergeant Alan Boughen said: “The victim was extremely frightened and intimidated by the offender whose actions could have resulted in a serious collision.”
The woman, in her 20s, was driving along the A142 in her white Volkswagen Golf between about 4pm and 5pm when she passed the offender in his blue Ford Focus, said a police spokesman.
Upon seeing the victim, the offender followed her, accelerating and driving very closely behind her.
