Humberside Police is appealing for witnesses following a road traffic collision and altercation on Prince Street, Bridlington at 12.30pm on Wednesday August 14.

An 18-year-old man was crossing the road when he was clipped on his elbow by the wing mirror of a passing silver coloured Vauxhall Corsa.

The car stopped at traffic lights and was approached by the pedestrian who spoke to the driver.

The driver then allegedly punched the 18-year-old in the face.

The pedestrian then grabbed the car keys to stop the car pulling away, but when the driver exited the car he threw the keys on the floor and walked off.
