A FLY-IN, fly-out worker from Singleton has been charged over a road-rage attack on the Kwinana Freeway in Success in which he allegedly shattered a car window with his fist.
Police charged the 29-year-old man a day after communitynews.com.au aired footage of the incident taken on the victim’s mobile phone.
Police say the man was a passenger in a black Holden Astra that was being driven aggressively after an incident with another driver on the Freeway onramp last October.
After entering the freeway, the Astra pulled up alongside a Ford Fiesta being driven by a 56-year-old woman.
Police say the man leant out the window, yelled abuse at the woman and threw something at her car.
Soon after the man got out of the car and approached the woman’s vehicle, shouting abuse and trying to open her driver’s door.
He is then alleged to have punched the driver’s window, shattering the glass and striking the victim on the right shoulder causing minor scratches.
Glass was spread throughout the victim’s car.
The man then walked back to the Holden, which continued south on the freeway.
Mandurah Detectives, in collaboration with Roebourne Police, arrested the man today.
He was charged with assault occasioning bodily harm and criminal damage.
He has been bailed to appear in the Fremantle Magistrates Court on Wednesday, March 9.
