Road rage victim chased by driver

A terrified driver was almost forced off a Halesowen road after a road rage attack involving a stolen car.

The victim was driving along Muckow Hill, on January 29 between 5.50-6.15pm, in a red Vauxhall Vectra when he was approached from behind by a blue Toyota MR2 flashing its lights and sounding his horn.

The offender wound down the window and shouted at the victim to pull over but he refused and a pursuit ensued.

Sergeant Lyn Butler said: "The MR2 passenger held a monkey wrench, leaned out of the window and threatened the victim, hitting the car, causing small dents.

"They followed for about a mile, causing the victim to be involved in a minor accident and we are trying to trace the car, stolen earlier that day from Tamworth-in-Arden."

The victim's ordeal ended when the offenders sped off and police are hunting two white men, aged between 21-24, one with stubble and a spotty face and the other clean shaven.

Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the MR2 registered K670 XJW should call police on 0121 626 8030 or crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.
