A Christchurch man suffered significant head injuries in a road rage-fuelled attack last Sunday.

Detective Sergeant Mark Worner said a 37-year-old man was assaulted about 7.45pm on the Johns Rd, Sawyers Arms Rd roundabout.

He had been driving a green Toyota station wagon when an incident occurred with the driver of a blue Isuzu Bighorn truck.

The man pulled off the road and parked behind the offender's car on the city side of the roundabout.

A tall man in his early 20s, who appeared to be of Indian or Fijian descent, got out of the truck and struck the victim in the head, leaving him with significant head injuries.

The man required hospital treatment for his injuries.

Anyone with information is asked to call Worner on 363 7996.
