Appeal for witnesses following road rage incident at South Melbourne

South Melbourne police are appealing for witnesses following a road rage incident which occurred in South Melbourne last Thursday, Victoria Police say.

The incident happened at the corner of Albert Road and Clarendon Street on 13 July at 8.50am.

The victim, a 25-year-old Windsor woman, told police she was driving her grey Ford Fiesta on Lakeside Drive when another vehicle, a silver VW wagon, attempted to overtake her.

As there was no room in front of her the driver was not able to overtake and began sounding his horn at her.

The driver of the VW then continued sounding his horn and tailgating her as she travelled along Albert Road and approached the intersection of Clarendon Street.

At the intersection the driver got out of his car, approached the victim’s vehicle and opened her driver’s door.

The man leaned into her car and began yelling at the victim about her driving before slamming the door and returning to his car.

The man is described as being in his mid- to late 30s and perceived to be of Caucasian appearance.

At the time of the incident he was wearing jeans, a hoodie and a blue beanie.

The VW wagon had a logo on the side panel advertising a painting firm.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers.
