Driver left with piece of metal in eye after huge brawl breaks out over parking spot

A driver is in need of urgent eye surgery after a road rage altercation with two older men over a parking spot in Sydney’s west.

Police allege the 22-year-old driver of a sedan and another driver, 51, started arguing over the car space just before 1pm on Sunday.

The older driver allegedly smashed the windscreen of the younger man’s car, while his 43-year-old passenger is accused of assaulting the man.

Video of the incident, taken on John Street in Cabramatta, shows the passenger approaching the sedan and launching a punch through the window before attempting to pull the driver out of the car.

According to police, the blow caused the younger driver’s glasses to shatter and a piece of metal to enter his eye.

The video shows a growing crowd of spectators lining the street as the car comes to a halt before reversing back down the street.

Still in reverse, the sedan slams into a van, which begins beeping.

As the sedan moves forward again, the 43-year-old man attempts to approach the vehicle once again – but this time the younger driver speeds off.

Police later arrested the two older men, with the 43-year-old charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm. He was refused bail to appear in Fairfield Local Court on Monday.

The 51-year-old was charged with malicious damage and common assault. He was granted conditional bail to appear in Fairfield Local Court on August 7.

The 22-year-old man is in the Sydney Eye Hospital, where he will have surgery.
