Amateur video released by police in New Jersey shows three people attacking and allegedly stabbing another driver at a traffic light in a road rage altercation, and authorities are asking for help locating the suspects.
The confrontation started on Route 88 in Point Pleasant Saturday, according to police, as a 39-year-old man from Toms River drove his black Jeep Wrangler alongside a dark Acura, both going westbound.
The driver of the Acura, which had tinted windows and New York plates, began yelling at the Jeep driver and his family while driving aggressively, the Jeep driver told police. The harassment continued until the two vehicles reached the intersection of Route 88 and Barb Lane, about a mile away.
That's where the driver of the Acura got out of his car and approached the Jeep, according to police. The Jeep driver also exited his vehicle, and the two drivers began fighting on the side of the road.
Then two other passengers from the Acura joined the fight, and the driver of the Jeep was stabbed with a small knife, police said. Video taken by a witness captured the assault, witnessed by the victim's wife and child in the car.
The three assailants -- two men and one woman -- ran back to their car and fled on Jack Martin Boulevard toward Route 70.
The victim was treated for cuts to the head and elbow at Ocean Medical Center.
Brick Police Chief Nils Bergquist said "it's unusual for a road rage incident to turn to physical violence." He's asking anyone with information to contact Brick Township Police Det. Timothy McCarthy at 732-262-1169.
