Man attacked in road rage incident

A road rage incident turned violent between two drivers on Friday, 28 April.

According to police reports, the drivers of the cars were travelling along Kenyon Howden at about 2.30pm, when one of the vehicles veered into the wrong lane, almost colliding with the second vehicle.

The man who was almost hit, signalled the other driver with his hands. The driver at fault then slowed down until he came to a complete stop.

“This caused the other driver to stop as well. He jumped out of their vehicle with his passenger and started shouting at the driver who almost caused the accident. They ripped his chain off his neck. Only when the man pulled out a knife did they back off,” said Montclair SAPS communication officer, Dereck Vijiam.

When the men walked back to the car, the passenger ripped off the back number plate from the assaulted driver’s car.

The assaulted driver drove off not realising the other car was following him. When he arrived at his destination, the other two attacked him again and began slapping him.

Montclair SAPS was called to the scene. A case was opened by both parties. Charges were open for assault.
