Escrick Teenager Punched in Face in York Road Rage Incident

Police car

2:32pm 10th November 2014

York police are appealing for information after an assault in the city.

It occurred at around 4.40pm on Tuesday 4 November 2014, at traffic lights at the junction of Elvington Lane and Hull Road.

A man driving a silver estate car pulled up behind a black Vauxhall Corsa, which had stopped at the lights, before getting out of his vehicle. He then had a verbal altercation with the Corsa driver, before he allegedly punched him in the face.

As a result of the assault, the Corsa driver, an 18-year-old man from Escrick, suffered a facial injury which requires ongoing medical treatment.

The suspect is described as being a white man, aged in his mid-forties, around 5ft 7in tall, with a medium build and was bald with greying hair at the sides.

PC Graham Marshall, of York Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “If you witnessed this assault taking place, or can help to identify the man responsible, I urge you to come forward as you may have vital information which could help my enquiries.

“I am also keen to speak to the driver of the silver car, so that I can understand the circumstances surrounding the incident, and ask them to contact me as soon as possible.”

Anyone who can assist with this investigation should contact York police on 101, select option 2 and ask for Graham Marshall. Alternatively, information can be emailed to  

Or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference number 12140191890.
