Somebody threatened my parents would the police be interested?

My mum and dad both getting on a bit, 70, were on their way home last night when some bloke opened his car door right in front of them causing my Mum to hit the brakes, she beeped her horn at him.

He then chased them and through a 30 zone overtook them brake tested them then blocked the road got out and threatened both of them.

Understandably they are both shook up, they have his address and car reg and my dad thinks itís on his dash cam although it has been playing up.

Is this worth a word with fuzz or do they have better things to do?

Yes I would, people like that need to be dealt with for the good of the rest of the public.

Any independent witnesses ?

My wife and children were threatened several weeks ago by a female car driver and make passenger when out for a walk.

The police took it seriously when we called, but due to a lack of independent witnesses there wasn't much they could do.

They did keep the vehicle reg on file for future reference.

Surely the full footage of the incident would be enough?

I'm sure it'd be enough to get started. From your post it wasn't clear whether the dash cam was working.

This is something that can and should be reported. Once itís reported it will stay on file forever even if it doesnít go anywhere. That way if they do it again to someone else, this will show a course of conduct.

In terms of offences, there may be some driving ones caught by the dashcam, and a common assault for both parents.

As said before, lack of independent witness may prove the stumbling block in regards to a conviction, however if there is footage, then this would be enough for a decision to be made regarding both the driving and assault offences.

Def report it, but without the footage it is one word against the other, which would make things difficult in regards to a conviction.

Go through the police and hopefully they will deal with him, if not you have his address

If it was my elderly parents some kind of justice would eventually have to be served.

Anyone with half a brain or doesn't feel the need to suggest they're a tough guy on the internet?

Let the police deal with it, focus your energy on your parents and making sure this gets put out of their mind.

So some "unofficial" action is required?

You should still report it. You never know, someone may have cctv that covers the area of the incident? Have you checked the local area?

Even if there's no footage, still report it.

At the least an intelligent report will be created. Then if something similar happens again it shows a propensity for this sort of behaviour and adds weight.
