The incident began on Alexandra Road, Wisbech, at around noon on Saturday, July 23, when the victim, a man in his 20s, who was driving a silver Fiat Punto, crashed in to the front of a green car while trying to move away from an obstruction.

Following the crash the victim was approached by a passenger from the green car who was carrying a baseball bat.

Concerned for his safety the victim drove off but was pursued through Wisbech by the green car.

The victim stopped his car on Redmoor Lane and left the vehicle to enter a house when he was grabbed by one of the men from the green car who struck him round the head with a baseball bat while a second man threw stones at him. The green car then left the scene heading towards the A47.

The victim suffered minor injuries.

Police are keen to speak to two men described as of a heavy build, white with tanned skin, and aged between 20 and 40. They would also like to speak to anyone who saw the green car, which is believed to be a VW Golf.
