At around 6pm on Wednesday (5/2) the victim, a 54-year-old man, was driving along the Woodstock Road in a green Mazda MX5 when he was cut up by a silver BMW.

Further along the road at the traffic lights of the Wolvercote Roundabout the driver of the BMW got out and started a verbal altercation with the victim. He then punched the victim in the face multiple times.
