A driver pulled a metal bar out of his car boot and attacked another vehicle during a dispute in a car park in Northampton.

At about 1pm on Sunday, March 15, a couple parked in the St James Retail Park in Northampton, close to the B&M store.

As they got out of their car, one of their doors brushed a neighbouring silver vehicle.

The owner of the silver vehicle then started shouting and swearing at the couple and pushed the woman in the chest, knocking her backwards.

He then got a black metal pole out of his car boot and threatened the woman before hitting the couple’s car.

He is described as a white man, about 5ft 6in or 5ft 7in, in his late 50s or early 60s. He was stocky, had grey hair and was wearing a grey jacket and oblong glasses.
