Police are investigating after a Devon County Councillor was allegedly kneed in the groin in a row over a parking space.
Frank Biederman, who is a councillor for north Devon, called police after he was allegedly assaulted in an incident at Church Hill in Fremington, Devon.
Police say they are investigating an allegation of common assault but no one has been charged in relation to the inquiry.
A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman confirmed officers were looking into the incident, said to have happened last Sunday morning.
Mr Biederman declined to comment when approached by the BBC, saying only that the investigation was "in the hands of the police".
Police confirmed the two men involved were known to each other and a man who was allegedly injured in the altercation called the police.
