Police have released images of a person they wish to speak to in connection with a road rage incident in which a man on an escooter threatened the driver of another vehicle with a machete.

The road rage incident happened in Preston on Wednesday afternoon.

At around 12.22pm the victim was driving along Sion Close in Ribbleton when an electric scooter travelling in the opposite direction swerved across his path.

Both vehicles stopped and the man on the scooter then brandished what is believed to have been a machete and made verbal threats.

He then left on the scooter towards the Grange Estate.

No arrests have been made at this stage and enquiries are ongoing.

PC Joe Harper said: “I understand this incident will cause the community a great deal of concern and I can confirm it is being treated as an isolated event. 

“Thankfully, although left shaken, the victim in this case was not physically hurt.

“Our enquiries are very much ongoing and we now need to speak to the man in the images who we believe can assist with our investigation.

“If anybody sees him I would ask them not to approach him but to contact police as soon as possible.

“I would also ask the man himself, if he sees this appeal, to make contact with us or attend his nearest police station.”

Anyone with information is asked to email or call 101, quoting log 0654 of June 9. For immediate sightings call 999.
