A minor car crash in Fremantle could have major consequences after a driver was allegedly stabbed with a broken golf club yesterday.

Police said the collision occurred between a Ssangyong Actyon utility and a BMW sedan just before 5pm on High Street.

The cars continued driving until they turned onto Amherst Street, where both drivers stopped and got out of their cars.

The 54-year-old Actyon driver, allegedly threatened the BMW driver with a golf club that had a piece of plastic on the missing head.

Police said he swung the golf club at the 45-year-old man and when the plastic dislodged, used the exposed sharp edge of the plastic to stab him in the chest.

The BMW driver fell backwards onto the ground and had to be rushed to Fremantle Hospital, where he required several stitches to close the wound on his chest.

The Actyon driver from Hamilton Hill was arrested and charged with ‘intent to harm, did an act and caused bodily harm’.

He is due to appear before the Fremantle Magistrate’s Court next month.
