A DRIVER was nearly veered off the road last month (December 27) when another driver allegedly sprayed a substance at them through their open passenger window.
At about 1pm on December 27, a blue Suzuki Vitara SUV was travelling east on Redfern Street toward Bindubi Street, Macquarie with a silver sedan travelling behind it.
It is alleged the silver sedan pulled into the right-hand lane alongside the Suzuki and drove in a manner that almost caused the Suzuki to veer off the road.
It is also alleged the driver of the silver sedan was yelling aggressively and sprayed a substance through the open passenger window of the Suzuki at the driver, causing him to stop his vehicle on the side of the road.
Shortly after, the silver sedan stopped behind the Suzuki and the driver got out of his car and approached the Suzuki. Another altercation occurred resulting in damage to the Suzuki, and the silver sedan driving off.
Police are seeking any witnesses to the incident, or anyone that may have dashcam footage of the silver sedan around the time of the incident.
Anyone that has information that can assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
