The man is seen stepping out of a blue Mercedes Benz C200, before allegedly taking a red baseball bat from the backseat of the vehicle and smashing a grey 2009 Holden Cruze.
Footage then shows an altercation take place through the driver’s window of the vehicle, before the alleged attacker and an accompanying female leave the scene.
The driver of the Holden Cruze, a 72-year-old man, suffered facial lacerations as a result of the shattered glass.
Police have further alleged that the incident arose from an earlier verbal altercation between the victim and a female passenger of the Mercedes.
