POLICE are seeking witnesses to a Thatcham road rage incident, involving a motorcyclist during Tuesday morning’s rush hour (Nov 17).

According to Thames Valley Police, at around 8.30am, at the junction of Thornford Road and Crookham Hill, a motorcyclist approached the car of a 34-year-old man, then repeatedly hit the driver’s window and attempted to open the door.

A few minutes later, on Thornford Hill, the motorcyclist pulled up alongside the driver in stationary traffic and again hit the window several times.   

The motorcyclist drove off in the direction of Thatcham level crossing.  

The man was driving a Silver Vauxhall Corsa.

The motorcyclist was white, riding a blue motorcycle and wearing a blue helmet.

Investigating Officer, PC Gary Hemmings of Newbury police station said: “We are appealing for any witnesses to come forward, this happened during rush hour so there would have been a lot of passing traffic. If you have any information about this incident please get in contact via the Thames Valley Police 24-hour enquiry line 101.”
