Officers are appealing for information, witnesses and dash cam footage following an incident in Hemel Hempstead.

At around 6.15pm on Saturday, March 26, two motorists, a man and a woman, were reported to be involved in an altercation at the bottom of Midland Road, with the junction of Marlowes.

The altercation continued onto Queensway and St Pauls Road where both parties exited their vehicles. It is reported that the man, who was driving a white Vauxhall Corsa, threatened and then pushed the woman. It is also alleged that he used a racist slur directed at her.

PC C-Jay Callaghan, who is investigating, said: “A 22-year-old man from Hemel Hempstead has been arrested on suspicion of a public order offence, assault and criminal damage. He was bailed until 27 March and has now been released under investigation.

“We are carrying out further enquiries and are keen to hear from anyone who might be able to help. We understand the incident led to a build-up of traffic so we are hopeful that there are many witnesses.

“If you saw any of what happened or have information, please get in touch. If you were driving in the area at the time and have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle, please check it and get in touch if you spot something that could help the investigation. You can get in touch by calling the non-emergency number 101 or email me at quoting crime reference 41/24136/22.”
