Police are asking for witnesses to come forward after a road rage incident on Cabana on Tuesday.

Around 3:45pm Tuesday, police were called to the area of Cabana and Howard to investigate after a man told them he was driving west on Cabana and got cut off.

Police say the victim was angry and followed the suspect vehicle closely for approximately 40 seconds. The suspect quickly came to an abrupt stop, 150 yards from the intersection at Howard Ave and traffic began to back up.

The victim was upset and raised his middle finger in the direction of the suspect vehicle through his windshield. Police say the suspect then got out of his vehicle and began walking toward the victim’s vehicle while holding a large hunting knife.

Police say the victim couldn’t back up because there was a pickup truck behind him so he got out of his car and quickly ran away. Police say the suspect ran toward him but then stopped near the complainant’s vehicle, yelling, “you think you are tough now?”

The victim responded from a distance saying, “hey man, it’s Christmas, I did not mean anything by it”.

Police were told the suspect turned toward the victim’s vehicle and slashed his tire. The suspect quickly got back into his vehicle and sped away in an erratic manner.

Police are seeking any witnesses to this incident and assistance in identifying the suspect or his vehicle.

They say the suspect was a white male, 23-25 years of age, 5′ 10″ to 6′ tall, skinny build, brown brush cut hair, crooked yellow teeth, wearing a 3/4 length baggy brown winter coat, blue jeans and white shoes. He was driving a black Pontiac G5 or G6 with a partial licence plate of “BRXE 3..”.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Windsor Police at 519-255-6700 ext. 4305, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 519-258-8477 (TIPS), online at www.catchcrooks.com.
