A MOTORIST was struck by another man and suffered a fractured cheek bone while he sat in his car during a terrifying road rage attack.
The 56-year-old victim was attacked in Grange Road around 5.15am on Tuesday.
The driver of a green transit-type van grabbed him and hit him several times ripping the victim’s t-shirt.
The victim received treatment at Conquest Hospital for a fractured cheek bone.
Police have described the van as being a passenger cab and a flat bed at the back with what looked like gas cylinders and brooms sticking out either side. A 43-year-old man, from St Leonards-on-Sea, was arrested on suspicion of assault. He was questioned and released on bail until September 14.
