A MOTORIST was kicked in the face in broad daylight during an alleged road rage incident in Taunton.

Police say the incident happened at the junction of St Augustine Street and Priory Avenue, where a man approached a blue Fiat Punto and began to shout at two men and two women inside.

One of them opened the door to ask the man to leave and it is alleged that he then kicked the victim in the face, while damage was also caused to the car.

Officers have arrested a man in his 40s on suspicion of assault and criminal damage. He has been released on bail pending further enquiries.

Police are still appealing for any witnesses to the incident, which happened last Thursday (June 19) between 10.30-11am.
