A DEAF man was left with a fractured jaw after falling victim to road rage.

The 27-year-old man was crossing Rosslyn Crescent, Harrow, when an angry driver revved his engine to try to hurry him along.

The victim shook his fist at the car, prompting a man aged around 30, to get out of the passenger side of the vehicle and punch him to the ground.

The attacker got back in the blue Audi, which drove off, leaving the victim lying on the floor with a fractured jaw.

He lost some teeth in the assault, and was taken to Northwick Park Hospital for treatment to his jaw.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the attack, which happened at around 4.20pm yesterday.

Anyone with information can call Harrow Police on 0208 733 3441, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
