Road-rager lands blows on car window in Chapel Street

A father was left terrified at the weekend when a fellow motorist punched his driver's side window during a road-rage incident while his young son was in the car.

The attack on Chapel Street, Windsor, at 3pm on Saturday has left the man, who did not want to be identified, and his four-year-old son scared and unable to sleep.

The man, aged in his 40s, said he was reverse parking when a motorist behind him honked his horn sharply.

The other driver drove around the man and parked a little way up the road before storming back towards the man's car.

The man said that he was repeatedly shouted at and told to get out of the car.

"I saw him coming so I locked the doors," the man said. "He came up to the side window screaming at me 'You cut me off'."


The man said the park was a routine reverse park and he had done nothing out of the ordinary.

"I repeatedly told him to go away because my four-year-old boy was in the car. He said 'I don't give a f---. Get out of your car'."

The man said he was "stunned and shocked" to then see the attacker punch his driver's side window repeatedly. He then walked off.

The attacker was driving a van with a company name and phone number on its side.

Police are investigating, but the man said he was fearful.

"It's repulsive," he said, adding that the punch was "extremely severe" and very close to his head.

"I dread to think what would happen if he got hold of me."
