Man had ankle slammed in car door SEVEN times in Weymouth

Portland Beach Road

(Updated 11:57am 19th June 2018)


4:44pm 18th June 2018

An investigation's underway in Weymouth into an assault and dangerous driving incident.

At 9pm on Saturday 16 June 2018 it was reported that a grey Volkswagen Transporter overtook eight vehicles on Portland Beach Road, close to the Victoria roundabout, despite there being oncoming traffic.

The manoeuvre caused the driver of a black Mercedes to stop suddenly. The driver of the Transporter got out of his vehicle and shouted at the driver.

As the victim attempted to get out of his car, the offender pushed his door shut and trapped the victim's right ankle in the door.

The offender then proceeded to slam the door onto the man's ankle a further six times.

The victim - a 35-year-old local man - sustained injuries to his ankle. He also suffered a broken thumb, which will require surgery to repair.

Police Constable Chris Stephens, of Weymouth police, said: "I am appealing for anyone who was travelling in the area the relevant time and witnessed all or part of the incident to please contact Dorset Police.

"I am also keen to hear from any motorists who may have captured the incident on dashcam."
