Police in Brixworth are appealing for witnesses to a road rage incident that took place in Spratton Road, yesterday afternoon.

A 30-year-old woman was driving a silver Vauxhall Astra along the road just after 1pm, after leaving the Co-Op car park, when a silver/light blue Fiat Punto drove up rapidly behind her and drove into the back of her car three times.

The victim stopped the car at which point the man driving the Punto got out and walked towards her, shouting racially abusive comments. He then pushed her into the door frame of her car.

The offender then got back into his car and drove away along Harborough Road.

It is believed the man had been to the Co-Op before the incident took place.

He was a white man, aged in his 40s, of stout build, around 5ft 7ins tall and was wearing jeans and boots.

Police would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who may recognise the description of the offender.

They would also like to speak to anyone who may have seen a man matching this description in the Brixworth Co-Op prior to the incident.

Witnesses or anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 111 555.
