Police are on the look out for a man who repeatedly stabbed a 56-year-old motorist in a fight following two collisions on Thursday.

A police spokesman said officers went to King Edward VII Memorial Hospital at 8pm on Thursday after they received reports that a man had been wounded.

The 56-year-old victim told police he was driving east on Middle Road when a motorcycle struck his van from behind and continued without stopping.

Both vehicles continued east until they reached the temporary traffic lights at the junction of St Mary’s Road in Warwick, where the van struck the motorcycle, which ended up in a nearby bus lay-by.

The spokesman said: “The male motorcycle rider got off the bike and both men got into a fight, during which the 56-year-old was allegedly stabbed multiple times about the body with a bladed article.

“The suspect fled the scene on foot. The victim was able to drive himself to hospital where he was attended to for his injuries which were not considered to be life threatening.”

The suspect was described as a Black male in his early 20s, approximately 5ft 6in tall.

At the time of the incident he was dressed in a grey shirt with a floral design and black pants. He also wore a tan hat under his motorcycle helmet.

Anyone with information is urged to call 211, the main police number at 295-0011 or, the independent and confidential Crime Stoppers number at 800-8477.
