A 19-year-old has admitted assaulting a teenager by hitting him on the head with a car wheel brace.
Andrew Dyke, of Northgate, Lowestoft, hit Steven Leslie, 17, with the 18in long metal tool after pulling up beside him in his car on Water Lane on April 29.
Magistrates in Lowestoft heard on Friday that Dyke pulled up alongside Mr Leslie after picking up his girlfriend from nearby Lowestoft College.
Although the pair had had altercations in the past, Mr Leslie was subjected to an unprovoked assault in the street at about 1pm.

James Hartley, defending, said: “He lost it and had a moment of madness. He cannot rationalise why he sis it. His intention was to scare him [Mr Leslie] with it and not to hit him. He said he could not sleep for a month after the incident.”
