Man still at large after road rage attack

A man who allegedly smashed a windscreen and punched another motorist, causing him to collapse, in a Dunedin road rage incident last week remains at large.

A police spokeswoman said this morning the man had not yet been located and inquires were ongoing.

The man was understood to be known to police.

The incident unfolded shortly before 4pm on Friday, when police received a report about the "serious assault" in Taieri Rd, between Wakari and Helensburgh Rd near Wakari Hospital.

The victim had been repeatedly assaulted but was conscious and able to speak, a police spokeswoman said.
