The moment a furious cyclist armed with huge 'zombie knife' smashes car window

  • Video report by ITV News Correspondent Paul Davies

A furious cyclist wielding a huge 'zombie knife' smashed the window of a car in a terrifying confrontation on a busy south London street.

The 19-year-old driver of the Volkswagen Golf tried to escape but collided with another vehicle as he did so.

He eventually managed to run as the cyclist tried to force open the passenger door of the Golf.

The row appeared to start after the driver pulled out in front of the bike on the busy London Road in Croydon, causing the cyclist to swerve.

The suspect later left the scene and the victim returned, unharmed, to his car.
