A woman was pinned between two cars and threatened by a dog following a road rage incident at an Aberdeen roundabout.
Police are now investigating the incident at the Tesco roundabout near Persley Bridge.
It is understood that a 46-year-old woman and a young man in his late teens to early twenties exited their vehicles following a heated road rage argument at 1.10pm on Saturday.
The man, who was described as being white, with fair short hair and of slim build with possibly a piercing on his left eyebrow then threatened the woman with a dog believed to be a Staffordshire Terrier.
He then entered his grey Ford Mondeo and reversed towards the woman and her vehicle, pinning her between the two cars.
The Mondeo driver then sped off over the Persley Bridge in the direction of Bucksburn.
It is reported that the woman was then taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary by a friend where she received treatment for minor injuries to her legs, and was released from hospital the same night.
A police spokeswoman said: “We are undertaking a positive line of inquiry and nobody has been charged.”
Investigating officer Stuart Gillies said: “This assault had the potential to cause serious injuries to the female and I urge anyone who knows the male or who may have witnessed the incident to come forward and contact the police.”
The grey Ford Mondeo was described as having faded paintwork, and the dog involved in the incident is said to be sandy coloured.
Two other passengers were seen in the car with the young male driver who was wearing a grey hooded top and dark trousers.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
