Woman racially abused on driveway after road rage incident
10:27am Friday 20th December 2013 in News
A WOMAN was subjected to a tirade of racial abuse on the driveway of her Southampton home.
Police are seeking witnesses to the incident in Janson Road, Shirley, which took place at 4.45pm on Monday.
The 33-year-old was verbally abused following a driving incident a few minutes earlier, officers say. It involved the wing mirror of the car she was driving touching the wing mirror of an oncoming vehicle along Janson Road.
The woman arrived home and got out of her car but was confronted by the man who drove the other vehicle.
Officers say the tone of his comments was based on their different racial backgrounds.
The man drove a dark Volvo or BMW estate, and is described as white, in his mid to late 40s, slim, with short dark hair and around 5ft 10in. He wore a grey jumper and beige trousers.
PC Peter Cruden said: “I want to speak to anyone who was driving in the area at the time who witnessed either the wing mirror contact or the incident between the man and woman in Janson Road.” Anyone with information should call police on 101.
