Road rage thug smashes machete against car while terrified child sobs inside

A machete-wielding thug launched a terrifying assault on a family's car while a frightened little girl sat inside crying, as shown in a horrifying video.

The man carries out the apparent road rage attack outside school gates while parents were dropping off their children in Dudley, West Midlands, this morning (December 9).

Despite repeated 999 calls from other parents and the school, the victims said police failed to immediately attend the scene, Birmingham Live reports.

The chilling footage was recorded at 9:11am with the female victim's phone while her partner sat in the driver's seat and her daughter cried in the back.

In the clip, the man bangs the blade against the vehicle's bonnet and then smashes the windscreen.

The 23-year-old mum said her partner had initially asked the driver of a van to slow down when he sped around a sharp corner.

She told Birmingham Live: "We are still in shock. They sped around the corner and nearly clipped us.

"He then pulled his window down and my partner just said: 'Brother, there's children running around, crossing the street – slow down next time.'

"And then it was pure aggro, making threats trying to reach in to grab my partner.

"My daughter was also in the back crying, she's absolutely traumatised.

"It's disgusting. She keeps crying and asking her teachers: 'Is mummy ok? The bad man smashed the window.'"

The mum said the men fled the scene, but she did manage to note down the number plate of the grey-coloured Mercedes van.

She said: "This is a dangerous man who has pulled out a weapon. Police need to act now.

"A man with a machete has gone free. It's crazy."

She claims her partner was later pulled over by police officers due to the smashed window.

He explained what had happened to officers, who she claims were "gobsmacked" and told him to get it fixed.

The mum later said that an inspector had been in touch, following inquiries by Birmingham Live, and said an officer would be taking a statement tonight.
