Angry driver punches cyclist in face

Police are hunting for a motorist who punched a cyclist in the face in a road rage incident in Melbourne on Monday morning.

Police said the male driver of the vehicle, believed to be aged in his 40s, pulled over near a tram stop, approached the cyclist and an argument took place.

The man then punched the cyclist on the chin and left the scene in his vehicle. He is described as Caucasian with a solid build, shaved head and grey facial hair. He was driving a white sedan, possibly a Suzuki.
