A man has been hit so hard with a baseball bat that it split in half during the attack.
The assault happened in Cheltenham yesterday afternoon, when he stopped his car in front of traffic lights at the junction of Princess Elizabeth Way and Orchard Avenue. A van behind crashed into the back of his car.
The 45-year-old victim got out of his car - a green Peugeot 206 - and approached the van behind to discuss what had happened.
It was at that point that he was assaulted by the van driver, who was leaning out of the window. The attacker and his passenger then drove off up Princess Elizabeth Way, eventually mounting the pavement and turning into Redgrove Road.
The attacker's van is silver with a roofrack and a ladder and/or pipes on the roof.
The driver is believed to be about 6’ tall, with ginger hair, of stocky build, wearing a black top with gold coloured writing. The passenger was wearing a similar top.
Later on, a van answering this description was seen driving erratically at Gallagher Retail Park.
Anyone who saw what happened should contact Gloucestershire Police on 101.
