A 23-YEAR-OLD man was hit by a car after trouble flared in Lowestoft.

The man suffered grazes, cuts and bruises to his chin and legs after an incident in Hill Road around 4.10 to 4.20pm on Wednesday.

He was standing by the side of the road talking to a friend when a red Alfa Romeo-type car came out of Halcyon Crescent. The 23-year-old felt the vehicle got too close to him and he gestured at the driver. Moments later the vehicle stopped and reversed into the 23-year-old, who fell to the ground.

The man driving the Alfa then got out of the vehicle and was abusive towards him before getting back in the car and driving off. Police need to trace the driver, who is white with a tanned complexion, aged in his late 20s to early 40s, around 5ft 10ins - 5ft 11ins tall, of stocky build with short shaved brown hair and wearing a tight black T-shirt and dark jeans. It's thought there was a young girl, possibly aged around six or seven, in the back of the Alfa.

The 23-year-old was checked over at the scene by ambulance personnel. Anyone who saw the incident or who has information about the man should telephone Lowestoft police on 01986 835300.
