TWO men are wanted by police after allegedly throwing a brick at a motorist and threatening him with a stick.
Police were alerted to an incident in Chester Road, Stevenage, after a member of the public called at about 10.30pm on Monday.
A man was sitting in the driver’s seat of his silver Volkswagen Golf, which was parked in the road as he waited for a friend, when a black car stopped alongside.
Police believe a man got out of a rear passenger seat of the black car and started threatening the victim, who got out of his own car and was then chased by the man with a wooden stick.
The driver of the black car also got out of the vehicle, throwing a brick at the victim and causing an injury to his back.
The victim got back into his Golf and tried to drive away, with the first offender throwing a brick at the car and causing a window to smash.
As a result the victim cut his upper arm.
