A MAN was attacked by two moped riders after they kicked his car.

The 46-year-old suffered cuts and bruises to his face when he got out of his car to speak to the young men in Welham Green.

It happened at about 4pm on Tuesday last week as the older man drove his cream VW Beetle from Colney Heath towards the village.

The thugs on mopeds rode close to his vehicle in Knolles Crescent, so he let them pass.

But, as they did, he believes they kicked his car, so he stopped to approach them.

Following a verbal altercation, the car driver was then assaulted.

The first offender was wearing a dark blue Puffa jacket, dark blue Adidas tracksuit bottoms and tan brown boots.

He was wearing a helmet throughout the incident and was driving a blue moped.

Pc Jo Stagg, investigating, said: "This incident caused the road to be blocked and there must have been people who saw it take place.

"I would ask these people and anyone else with information to come forward and help us with our inquiries."

Those with information should call Pc Stagg on 01707 638129.
