A man was stabbed in the back of the neck with a key during an assault at Cassiobury Park car park.

Police say the driver was attacked after a dispute broke out by the Watford park on Monday April 18.

It happened between 3.40pm and 4.05pm and involved drivers of a silver van and a blue Peugeot 207 car.

It has been alleged one of the men kicked the wing-mirror of the Peugeot, causing it to fall off. He also reportedly punched the victim whilst with his vehicle's keys in hand, which police say caused a "small" wound to the back of the victim's neck.

Police officers immediately attended the car park and say they detained a 39-year-old man from Barnet.

He was taken into custody on suspicion of assault (ABH), criminal damage and common assault. He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
