EXTON, Pa. (CBS) — Police in Chester County, Pa. have released a sketch of a driver they want to talk to in connection with a violent road rage incident earlier this week in Exton.
Police say he attacked and robbed another driver shortly before 9 a.m. Monday morning on the Route 30 bypass.
A 44-year-old woman tells West Whiteland police she changed lanes and accidentally cut off another driver, but the incident quickly turned violent.
“He started honking the horn, waving his arms,” says Detective Scott Pezick. “When they stopped at a traffic light, he approached her — which became very scary, reached into the vehicle, punched her in the forehead, removed her glasses from her face, and walked off with her glasses.”
The road rager is described as a white male about 25 to 30 years old, about 5’10″ tall and 200 lbs., with long, light brown hair.
His pickup truck, Pezick says, was a distinctive, 1980s-era Dodge Ram 50 with weathered blue paint.
Police believe the man fled south on Route 100 and was last seen taking the Pottstown Pike exit toward West Chester. If anyone can help West Whiteland police identify him, please call them at 610-363-0200 or 610-692-5100.
The woman suffered minor injuries.
