On Saturday the victim, a 61-year-old man, was in his vehicle in Westcroft District Centres car park, Barnsdale Drive, when he was involved in a verbal altercation with a man, also in a vehicle, outside the entrance to Morrison’s.

Following the argument, the man followed the victim in his vehicle, and then blocked the victim’s vehicle in with his own.
