Police are appealing for witnesses after a pedestrian allegedly threatened a car driver with a wooden bat in Thetford.

A man was driving a dark blue Ford Fiesta along Guildhall Street, near Old Market Street, at about 10.15pm on Tuesday when he stopped to allow a male pedestrian to cross the road.

The driver heard a bang on the side of the car and as he got out of the car to investigate, the pedestrian made threats with what is described as a wooden bat.

The driver was not hurt but the car’s wing mirror and driver’s side door were damaged.

Officers are particularly keen to speak to the occupants of a car which was parked at some temporary traffic lights who may have witnessed the incident.
