Thames Valley Police are appealing for witnesses following incident criminal damage and driving offences in Loudwater, High Wycombe.

At around 11.20am on Wednesday 8th August 2018 a man was driving his van along Kingsmead Road, High Wycombe.

A man driving a black Vauxhall Astra was on the wrong side of the road as he performed an overtaking manoeuvre to get past another motorist coming in the opposite direction.

The driver of the van challenged the driver of the Vauxhall about his driving, at which point the Vauxhall driver got out his car and punched the side of the victim’s van.

The offender also drove his car a short distance away to park up and then removed a wheel brace from his boot and ran towards the victim.

The van driver then drove off, at which point the offender got back into his vehicle and pursued the victim down the Kingsmead Road onto Boundary Road and the wrong way around a roundabout. He then stopped his vehicle after the Happy Union pub blocking the victim’s path.

The offender then searched the boot of his car and the van driver in fear reversed his van and turned round, driving along Station Road and turning right onto London Road.

The offender got back into his car and tried to overtake the van.

The van driver then turned onto Wooburn Green Lane and again the offender went the wrong way round a roundabout, trying to block the van.
