Police: Woman Stabbed In Road Rage Incident In Delaware

FELTON, Del. (CBS) – Police are investigating after they say a woman was stabbed during a road rage incident in Delaware.

Authorities responded to the area of the 10000 block of South DuPont Highway around 2:30 p.m. Sunday for a report of a woman stabbed during an altercation at a red light.

Upon arrival, police say they determined the 36-year-old woman was riding as a passenger when another car pulled up at a traffic light.

Officials say the female driver and female passenger of the other car exchanged profanities and displayed “unpleasant hand gestures” toward the victim and her family while at the red light.

Police say a female passenger of the other vehicle then exited her car and began approaching the passenger side of the victim’s vehicle.

As the victim began to exit the car, the female passenger from the other vehicle began to assault her, police say.

As the two were engaged in confrontation, authorities say the driver from the suspect’s car began stabbing the victim in the upper torso.

The three then separated and went back in their vehicles, and continued driving southbound on US 13.

Police say that is when the victim realized she had been stabbed.

The victim’s daughter pulled up to a residence on the 10000 block of South DuPont Highway and called 911.

The victim was taken by EMS to an area hospital and was admitted in stable condition.

Police say the incident may have started when the suspect’s vehicle began following the victim’s car. Police say the suspect was honking the horn and flashing their lights while traveling in the left lane in the area of US 13 southbound near Voshells Mill Road.

The suspects are described by police as two black females. The driver is approximately 50 to 60 years old, while the passenger was 20 to 30 years old.

Police say they received varying descriptions, but the vehicle may have been a grey-colored Toyota Corolla.

Anyone with information on the incident is urged to contact Detective T. Valeski at 302-698-8442. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet at www.delaware.crimestoppersweb.com, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
