A Road rage incident near Leek has sparked a witness appeal by Staffordshire Moorlands Local Policing Team (LPT).

The incident happened between 4.20pm and 4.30pm on Saturday 5 April after a silver Vauxhall Astra overtook a white van in Buxton Road at Flash.

The vehicles continued and both pulled over near the junction with Novi Lane, Leek.

An argument between the occupants of the vehicles ensued which resulted in the passenger from the white van assaulting the driver of the Astra.

The victim, a 34-year-old man from Leek, suffered a minor facial injury but didn’t require hospital treatment.

The suspect got back into the van which then drove off.

The suspect is described as a black man aged in his mid 20s, slim build and 5ft 7ins.

He wore a blue baseball cap with a red rim and had a gold upper tooth.

The driver of the van was a black man aged in his 30s, with curly black hair and he wore blacked rimmed glasses.

The van is described as a medium size white van with colourful writing on the side similar to ‘wash and vax’.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or has information on the vans identity is asked to contact PC Juliette Scrimshaw at Staffordshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 524 of April 5.
