A WOMAN needed hospital treatment after being pinned between two cars in a road rage attack.
A young male driver threatened the 46-year-old woman with a Staffordshire terrier in the incident before he got into his car and reversed towards her vehicle, striking her and pinning her between the two cars before speeding away.
The victim was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary for treatment to leg injuries.
Police are investigating the assault, which happened at the Tesco roundabout in the Bridge of Don area of Aberdeen at around 1.10pm on Saturday.
The man is thought to be in his late teens or early 20s, white, and of slim build with short, fair hair. He was driving a grey Ford Mondeo with faded paintwork.
Officers said he was wearing a grey hooded top and dark trousers and may also have a piercing on his left eyebrow.
He had two passengers in his car and a sandy-coloured Staffordshire terrier.
A police spokesman said: “This assault had the potential to cause serious injuries to the female and I urge anyone who knows the male or who may have witnessed the incident to come forward and contact the police.
“Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.”
