An  CCTV image of a car officers would like to trace in connection with a collision in Reading.

At 8.55pm on Friday 21 August a silver Audi turned from Oxford Road in to Belmont Road.

The victim, a 43-year-old man, stopped when he saw the car turn into the road and was concerned about the driver. He asked him if he was OK but the driver shouted and swore at him in response.

The driver then drove his car into the victim, who was attempting to cross the road, which hit him in to the opposite lane of Belmont Road. He then drove away down Belmont Road.

The victim sustained minor cuts and scrapes to his legs, arms and wrists and bruising to his legs. He did not require hospital treatment.

The offender is described as white, aged approximately in his mid twenties, with short shaved hair, a well-groomed beard and was wearing a grey t-shirt.
