A SINGLETON man charged with a road rage attack on the Kwinana Freeway in October has been sentenced to 10 months prison.

Anwar Hautapu was a passenger in a black Holden Astra in Success in October that, after entering the freeway, pulled up beside a Ford Fiesta being driven by a 56-year-old woman.

Police said Hautapu leaned out of the window, yelled abuse at the woman and threw something at her car.

He was filmed by the victim leaving his car and approaching her vehicle, shouting abuse and attempting to open her driver’s door.

He then 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. He then walked back to the Holden, which drove off.

He was today sentenced to 10 months in prison for the attack and will be eligible for parole in five months.
