'Unreal' dash cam footage shows multiple attempted attacks on motorist

Police on hunt for suspects


ESSEX POLICE are on the lookout for two suspects who were filmed aggressively harassing another motorist.

The shocking scene, caught on dash cam, was branded “unreal” and “frightening” by followers of the Essex Police Twitter account. It shows two people in an Audi A1 repeatedly cut-up, brake check and block the dash cam user on a stretch of the busy A127 near Leigh-on-Sea. On one occasion the Audi is positions to block both lanes of the dual carriageway.

The aggressors can be seen getting out of the Audi on more than one occasion and approaching the other vehicle. On the third attempt, one man in a grey tracksuit is shown trying to strike the dash cam user’s car with a water bottle.

Do you recognise the men in this dash cam footage?

We would like to talk to them about an incident on the A127 from near to the junction of Bellhouse Lane to close to Weir roundabout on January 13 at 8.10am.

Call 101 or .

Frightening who one has to share the roads with. Hope he is found and suitably dealt with.
