A man was left with an injury to his head when two men armed themselves with scythes and smashed their way through a car windscreen in Rugby last week.

Two men, armed with the agricultural implements jumped out of a white Mitsubishi Shogun and began smashing the windscreen of stationary black Land Rover Discovery.
