  • Melbourne road rage victims subjected to 15 minutes of hell by another driver 
  • A simple trip to the gym turned into a terrifying ordeal for Kirsty and Lawrence
  • After tailgating and swerving, the aggressor then pulled out a long chain 

The victim of a road rage attack thought she was going to die when another driver put leant out of his window and started striking their car with a chain.

Kirsty, 27, and her partner Lawrence were almost run off the road on Thursday by an aggressive Toyota Camry driver as they drove from Roxborough Park to Somerton in Melbourne‘s north.

The bizarre and terrifying ordeal lasted more than 15 minutes with the man tailgating, brake-testing and swerving towards the couple’s car to try and get them off the road.

‘Don’t f****** come here,’ the man in the Camry shouted out his open car window at the couple who were on their way to a gym.

He then lashed the chain at Kirsty’s car, with the clanging sound being heard on the video filmed by Lawrence.

Kirsty, 27, can be heard asking her partner, ‘Is he serious? Is he serious right now?’

She told 9News that ‘He started actually swinging a chain at my car and damaged my passenger side. 

‘He was yelling at me, threatening to kill me and my partner.’ 

Lawrence said the man in the Toyota ‘was driving so erratically that he ended up on the other side of the road and was continuing to pursue us’.

In part of the clip Kirsty is heard telling Lawrence that she does not want to pull in.  

‘I’d rather go in the gym and f****** get them to f*** him up,’ she said. 

As both cars pulled into the Somerton gym car park, CCTV captured the Camry closing in on Kirsty.

When they parked, Lawrence immediately ran into the gym’s reception area and summoned help from other customers and the owner who went outside with him. 

Gym owner Maythan Sheriffi said he was shocked. ‘The guy literally had a chain in his hand and it looked like… a long chain. 

‘He threatened us with the chain,’ he said.

Kirsty has been so traumatised by her horrific ordeal she has had difficulty sleeping and was forced to take time off work to recover from the stress.

‘I’ve just been terrified that it happened so locally, close to where I live and close to where I work,’ she said. 

Police are still looking for the man involved and any witnesses are urged to contact them.
