A driver rammed a couple’s car repeatedly during a chase, Sussex Police said, as the force appealed for witnesses and camera footage.
Sussex Police said: “Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision between two vehicles in Rustington on Saturday (6 January).
“At around 9pm, a man and woman reported being followed in their car – a blue Peugeot – by another vehicle – a grey Volkswagen Polo – from Station Road through to Abbotswood, during which their car was repeatedly rammed.
“Both vehicles pulled over in Abbotswood where a man left the pursuing vehicle and struck the victims’ car before they fled the scene.
“They were pursued again before stopping in Seafield Road where the man once again got out and struck their car.
“The victims were then able to escape and call police.
“Officers identified a suspect and a 33-year-old man, from Littlehampton, was arrested on suspicion of stalking and driving a motor vehicle dangerously.
“He has been released on bail with strict conditions while the investigation continues.”
Detective Inspector Ali Hutchings said: “This was a prolonged incident over a fairly large area that is likely to have been witnessed by a significant number of people.
“Anyone who saw the events of Saturday night, has relevant dashcam or doorbell footage or has any information that could help is asked to contact police online or via 101, quoting serial 1136 of 06/01.”
