Image appeal following road rage incident in Bournemouth

20 July 2021
Officers investigating a road rage incident in Bournemouth are issuing an image of a man they would like to speak to.

The victim, a woman aged in her 20s, was a passenger in her friend’s car as they were driving along Ringwood Road, near to the Ringwood Road Retail Park at around 2.30pm on Sunday 6 June 2021. They became aware of a grey Audi estate car that pulled out in front of them, causing them to brake sharply.

The woman shouted out of the window at the male driver of the Audi. He got out and walked toward their car before opening the passenger door and slapping the victim in the face and shouting abuse at her. The man then went back to his vehicle.

The victim did not sustain any injuries that required hospital treatment.

Police Community Support Investigator Brett Hirst, of Dorset Police, said: “We have been carrying out enquiries into this incident and have obtained an image of a man we would like to speak to as part of our investigation.

“We have so far been unable to identify him and I would urge anyone who is able to assist to please come forward.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email 101@dorset.pnn.police.uk or by calling 101, quoting occurrence number 55210089632. Alternatively, to stay 100 per cent anonymous, contact the independent charity Crimestoppers online at Crimestoppers-uk.org or call freephone 0800 555 111.
