Pensioner Injured In Poole Road Rage Attack
Detectives in Poole are investigating a road rage attack which left a 76-year-old man with a broken nose and hand.
The man from Broadstone suffered serious injuries to his face between 9.15pm and 9.35pm on Bonfire Night (Wednesday 5 November) in the Asda car park in West Quay Road.
A row broke out between the occupants of two vehicles near to the exit ramp of the car park, when it was really busy after the fireworks on Poole Quay.
The victim, the front seat passenger of a black Audi, left the vehicle and was struck by the driver of a blue Nissan causing him to fall to the ground.
The victim suffered a cut to his right ear, which required an operation and 26 stitches and a suspected broken hand and nose.
Detective Constable Christian Bryant, of Bournemouth CID, said:
“This road range incident happened after the fireworks event on Poole Quay and the car park had become gridlocked with people leaving to go home. As it occurred in a busy area a number of people may have witnessed what happened.
“I am appealing for anyone who saw the incident, or has any information about the events leading up to it, to contact Dorset Police.”
The offender is described as white and aged in his 20s. No arrests have been made.
Witnesses and anyone with information should call Dorset Police in confidence on 101 quoting incident number 5:453. Alternatively, call the free and anonymous Crimestoppers line on 0800 555 111 where mobile phone tariffs may apply.

The busy road's being made two lanes in both directions between Segensworth and Titchfield - it's due to take 18 months.
