Police have appealed for witnesses after a road rage argument in Welwyn Garden City.

The male driver of a dark grey Kia Sportage threatened a man aged in his 50s following a minor road disagreement at a roundabout in Bridge Road East.

The victim had parked his car in the B&Q off Swallowfields to run an errand, following which the Kia driver started taking pictures of his vehicle.

When questioned by the victim, the offender threatened to stab him next time before running off, a police spokeswoman said.

Following the altercation at around 12.15pm on Tuesday, August 28, police today (September 20) appealed for witnesses.

PCSO Daniel Hill from the Welwyn Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team said: “We know that the driver of a black Astra witnessed the incident and stopped to ask the victim if he was ok, and we’re keen to speak to this person as they may have further information that may help us to identify the man.”

Anyone with information can contact officers via non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference 41/31691/18, or by emailing
