Public appeal after road rage in Flemington

Police are appealing for public assistance to identify a man following a road rage incident in Flemington today.

It’s believed a white cash logistics vehicle was driving on Racecourse Road and proceeding to turn into a shopping centre carpark when a red hatchback nearly collided with the white vehicle on Friday, 3 December about 1.05pm.

The driver of the red hatchback then approached the white vehicle and remonstrated with the driver before using a hammer to smash the driver’s side window and front windscreen.

The driver of the hatchback then returned to the boot of his car. The cash logistics driver has then drawn but not discharged his legally issued firearm before the driver of the hatchback fled the scene in his vehicle.

The driver and passenger of the cash logistics vehicle weren’t physically injured.

Police have released an image of a man they believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.

He is perceived to be Caucasian in appearance, in his 50s with a solid build. He was wearing dark glasses, a blue singlet, dark shorts and brown sandals.

Anyone with information or dashcam footage is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
