A driver has allegedly been repeatedly punched in the head and abused in a road rage incident in Yarralumla last Thursday (20 September).

Around 5:25 pm, an altercation occurred between a white sedan and a blue Mazda 2 hatchback at the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Coronation Drive heading northbound.

While the vehicles were stopped at the lights, a man described as about 20-years-old with dark hair and wearing a cap got out of the passenger side of the white sedan and opened the front passenger door of the Mazda hatchback. He allegedly punched the driver in the head a number of times while yelling abuse.

The man then got back into the sedan and left the area.
