An investigation has been launched into a road rage incident in East Grinstead.
Two men became involved in a dispute on 16th March shorty after four o’clock in the afternoon.
The driver of a silver Honda CR-V was reported to be shouting and threatening the driver of a campervan in East Grinstead High Street.
When the vehicles came to a stop at the traffic lights near London Road, the Honda driver then got out of his car and punched the campervan driver several times. The victim was still seated in his vehicle.
Both vehicles then left the scene.
The Honda driver is described as white, 6′, thin and his 30’s, and was wearing shorts.
Witnesses to the attack reported it to police; so far neither driver has come forward.
A leading Muslim fears Kent-born Khalid Masood, the attacker who was shot dead in Westminster on Wednesday after killing people in a terrorist attack, may have had links with Crawley.
Speaking to the Crawley Observer, Ahsan Ahmedi from the Mosque in Langley Green condemned the attacks as evil and spoke of his worry the terrorist may have belonged to extremists once based in the area.
He told the paper, Crawley had experience of a particular extremist group “from time to time” and how their former head had visited the town on a regular basis in the 1990s.
He has urged everyone to remain vigilant so as to continue to rid the area of extremism.
