Police appeal for witnesses in Dudley rush hour assault

First published in Local

A GOOD Samaritan was punched and kicked in a rush hour assault on Dudley Southern By-pass.

The 59 year-old motorist was stationary in traffic in a blue Renault Megane at around 5pm on Friday November 9, when it is alleged the offender’s green Peugeot 206 cut in front of a lorry and the victim’s car before coming to a stop and blocking the entire road.

The victim, from Warley, got out of his car to check on the driver, who began reining blows on the man, before being joined by his passenger in the attack.

The attackers then drove off when another passerby dragged the pair from their victim.

Pc Alex Griparis, from Dudley police station, said:  "This was a nasty unprovoked attack committed at a busy junction in rush hour traffic. I am convinced that there will be people who witnessed the assault and have not yet spoken to us.

"The information they hold may be key to identifying the offenders and bringing them to justice."

Anyone with information should contact Pc Griparis on 101.
