Police are appealing for witnesses and dash cam footage after a driver was assaulted in Southend.

It was reported that the victim, a man in his 40s, was driving down Southchurch Boulevard at around 3.30pm on Friday January 17 when he spotted a pedestrian shouting aggressively towards two teenage girls near Southchurch High School.

The victim pulled his van over and got out to intervene. He went to the central reservation of the road, and was then seriously assaulted by the teenage boy.

The boy has been described as white and aged between 15 and 18. He was of small build and around 5ft 7in tall. He wore dark-coloured jogging bottoms and an electric blue puffed jacket with the hood up.

If you saw the incident, know anyone involved, or have dash cam or CCTV which could assist Essex Police’s enquiries, please call 101 and quote the reference number 42/9591/20.

You can also speak to Crimestoppers anonymously by calling 0800 555 111 or submitting information through their website.
