Police are appealing for witnesses after a man drove his car at a taxi driver following a dispute over a parking space.
The taxi driver had been trying to park on the street in the Morledge, Derby, around 12:30 on Easter Monday when he was challenged by another motorist.
The taxi driver then decided to park elsewhere but was further challenged by the man when he got out of his vehicle.
The offender shouted racial abuse at the taxi driver before getting back in his car and driving it at the victim. There was a minor collision in which the victim was not seriously injured.
Police say the offender was white, aged about 23, 5ft 8ins tall, of chubby build and with a chubby face.
Officers investigating the incident are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.
