A Rugby man has been arrested following a road rage incident in the town centre which saw a man allegedly threaten the victim with a hammer and a Stanley knife.
On Saturday, July 30, it is alleged that a driver began behaving aggressively after being beeped at.
In an incident that ran from Lower Hillmorton Road to Railway Terrace, the driver is alleged to have got out of his car on two occasions.
The first time he reportedly grabbed a hammer from his boot, approaching the victim’s car to make threats – and the second time he brandished a Stanley knife while shouting more threats.
The driver then left the scene and the incident was reported to the police.
Later that day police arrested a 35-year-old Rugby man on suspicion of committing a public order offence and possession of a bladed article.
As of today, August 3, the man has been released on police bail.
A spokesperson for Warwickshire Police said: “Reports of aggression and threatening behaviour on our roads will be investigated, and those responsible can and do face serious consequences.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident or has dashcam footage is asked to get in touch with police by visiting www.warwickshire.police.uk/ro/report or by calling 101, citing crime Reference: 23/32651/22
