Sussex Police Statement:

Police are appealing for witnesses after a man was injured while driving in Chichester.

At about 2.20pm on Friday (5 August), police received a report of a collision between a car and a motorcycle in Summersdale Road, close to the junction with Blomfield Drive.

The 19-year-old victim, from Bognor Regis, had been driving a silver Ford Focus when a motorcyclist – unprovoked – leant across and smashed the wing mirror to the vehicle. His partner and their baby were also present during the incident.

The impact caused glass from the wing mirror to travel through the driver's open window and into his throat, and he was taken to St Richard's Hospital in Chichester for treatment.

The suspect was dressed all in black, and was wearing a black helmet and riding a black motorcycle. He was seen to continue north along Summersdale Road and then left into The Broadway.

Anyone who saw what happened, or who saw the motorcyclist in the area before or after the incident, is asked to contact or call 101, quoting serial 864 of 05/08.

Alternatively, you can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 (
