Witnesses sought to incident of menacing driving

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an incident of menacing driving across a number of Canberra suburbs on Saturday 20 March 2021.

Between 2pm and 2.30pm, a car turned onto Coulter Drive from Redfern Street in Cook when a grey Mitsubishi Triton utility with New South Wales registration came up behind it.

At William Hovell Drive the Mitsubishi Triton turned on to John Gorton Drive where it was observed to be driving erratically.

It is alleged the driver of the Triton then followed the car and made several attempts to cut it off as the utility followed the car through streets in Coombs.

At one point, the driver of the Triton is alleged to have exited his vehicle and tried to open the door of the car.

The driver of the Triton stopped following the car when it entered the Tuggeranong Parkway. The car driver subsequently reported the incident to police.

Anyone with information that could assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6756980. Information can be provided anonymously.
