POLICE have released an image of a P-plater who allegedly knocked another driver unconscious in a road rage incident in Aranda late last month. 

Police release face fit image of alleged Aranda offender.

The face-fit image of the alleged offender was released by police after the P-plater was seen tailgating another car along Bandjalong Crescent, Aranda, near Jalanga Crescent, at about 10am, September 28.

The offender, who is described as about 18 years old, was believed to be driving an older model (90s or early 2000s) ute with a white tray back and ACT registration, when he was tailgating the victim and signalling him to pull over.

After pulling over, the victim exited the vehicle and was punched and knocked temporarily unconscious by the alleged offender who is described by police as about 188cm (6’2”), slim with short brown hair, brown eyes, a thin nose and lips, and no facial hair. The man was last seen wearing a green/black skull beanie and a black jacket.

Anyone with information or can identify the person depicted in the face-fit image that could assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website quoting reference number 6639076.
