NJ Man Hurt, Minivan Stolen in Road Rage Attack: Police



    A road rage spat between two drivers turned violent when the occupants of one of the vehicles assaulted the other driver and drove off with his car in New Jersey, police said. 

    The victim and the other driver had a verbal exchange at a traffic light at the intersection of Cedar Lane and Queen Anne Road in Teaneck at about 5:15 a.m. Sunday, according to police. The other driver was inside a light gray car with three other men.

    Three of the men got out of the vehicle, pulled the 44-year-old Hackensack victim from his Chrysler minivan, punched and kicked him, and hit him with a piece of a cinderblock, police said. 

    A fourth man drove off with the victim's minivan. The other assailants returned to their vehicle and sped off, police said. 

    The victim's vehicle was found in a nearby parking lot about an hour later, police said. Items from inside the car were found dumped on the ground. 

    The victim was treated at the scene for injuries to his hand, knee, face and head. 

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Teaneck Police.
