Police were called by paramedics to a report of the 34-year-old victim, who was having a fit in Orritor Street at around 4.35pm.

It's understood the man, who was the driver of a silver Vauxhall Vectra, had been involved in an altercation with the driver of a black Audi A4 in Coagh Street.

Both drivers then exited their vehicles in Orritor Street and the driver of the Audi is believed to have punched the victim, causing him to lose consciousness and subsequently fit.

The alleged assailant, who had left the scene prior to the arrival of the emergency services, is described as around 6ft 1" tall, well built with short, dark flat hair.

He was wearing hi-vis trousers and a black fleece.

The Audi is believed to have a possible partial registration of KHZ.

Police are keen to hear from witnesses or anyone who can help identify the Audi driver.

The investigating officer, Constable Cunningham, can be contacted at Cookstown police station via the non-emergency number 101.
