Police are hunting a woman who subjected another motorist to a terrifying road rage incident.

The 22-year-old victim, who has asked not to be named, was confronted in the overflow car park of Patterton train station, off Stewarton Road, at around 5.45pm on Saturday.

She had been on the phone to a friend when a middle-aged woman got out of her own car and threatened her with violence.

The terrified young woman, who is a beauty therapist, panicked and drove out of the car park in her Mini.

She claims the woman then chased after her in a Vauxhall Astra.

The pursuit continued for several miles along Barrhead Road, into Ayr Road, and only ended in Davieland Road, at Rouken Glen Park, as the irate woman drove off.

Her shaken victim then drove to Giffnock Police Office to report the incident.

She told the Barrhead News: “I had stopped in the car park to make a quick call and was the only person there.

“I looked up and saw a car coming in at high speed. The driver then pulled up next to my car and said she was going to kill me.

“She chased after me, blowing her horn. I had to overtake cars in front of me to try and avoid her. All the time, I could see her in my mirrors pointing at me.

“At one point, I had to go through a red light to get away from her and clipped another car by mistake.”

The petrified woman said she has since been treated in hospital for shock.

She added: “I’d never seen this woman before. When I got to the police station, I could could barely breathe.”

Her mum, who also asked not to be identified, posted about the incident this week on social media, appealing for witnesses to contact the police.

She added: “My daughter is completely traumatised by this.”

Police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Inspector Michelle Grant said: “Enquiries are ongoing into a report of a woman having felt threatened by the conduct of another woman in the area near Patterton railway station. No-one was injured and officers are following lines of enquiry.”

Anyone with information is asked to call officers on 101.
