A young motorist was chased, stopped and smashed over the head with a baseball bat after a road rage incident in the Elm area on Saturday.

A police spokesman said they were appealing to anyone who may have witnessed the assault.

The young driver – whose identity is being withheld- had accidentally reversed into a dark green Golf.

His mother said the “minor tap” which could easily have been resolved with an exchange of details for insurance purposes, ended with horrific consequence.

The mum said her son locked the doors and went to drive off but his wing mirror was hit by the other driver with his baseball bat.

“The chase continued until my son got out of the car after they blocked his path to meet an onslaught of blows with the baseball bat to the head,” she said.

He later received medical attention but she is hoping he will be okay.
