It happened a week ago Monday, on May 6th at 4:30 in the afternoon.
Mounties got a call from someone who reported they had been driving southbound on the Island Highway near Bayview Park Drive in Lantzville when he was sideswiped by a truck towing a trailer.
Both vehicles stopped and the driver of the truck got out and walked toward the victim.
He was wearing a balaclava and carrying a baseball bat and walked up to the victim’s driver’s side window and smashed the bat through it.
The victim suffered minor injuries as a result.
