Witnesses are being sought by Surrey Police following a road rage incident in Guildford where the suspect sprayed a can of unknown substance into the victim’s face.

On Thursday, March 17, the victim was driving her car along the A31 Hog’s Back when she became aware of an aggressive driver tailgating her. He followed her down Farnham Road, onto Wodeland Avenue, until the victim stopped at the junction of Mount Pleasant and Portsmouth Road. Here the suspect got out of his car, approached the victim’s vehicle and started kicking it, leaving a dent, and trying to break the glass.

When the victim got out of her car, the suspect sprayed her in the face with a can of unknown substance and attempted to grab her keys from her hand, snapping them in the process. The suspect then got back in his car, believed to be a silver Honda, and left.

His hair was medium brown and shaved very short, and he had a scruffy stubble beard. He was wearing light-coloured clothing, possibly a grey top with a logo on the front.
