Bear – Delaware State Police are investigating a road rage incident in which a man displayed a weapon at another man late last month in Bear.
Police say that the incident occurred on Wednesday, July 27, 2016, at around 8 p.m., as a 37 year old man was traveling in a vehicle on US 40 (Pulaski Highway)in the area of DE7 (Bear-Christiana Road), Bear.
According to police the victim was cut off by a second vehicle that was also traveling on US 40. Both vehicles then pulled into the parking lot of the Governor’s Square Shopping Center. The man exited his car and confronted the woman driving the second car about cutting him off, police said. The man then went inside of a store in the shopping center.
Authorities say a short time later, the man exited the store and was confronted by the woman of the second car and several male subjects. The man then fled to his vehicle and exited the parking lot with two of the males following him in a red Dodge Durango.
As both vehicles traveled in an eastbound direction on US 40 one of the male suspects in the second vehicle leaned out of the passenger window and displayed an unknown make and model handgun at the victim, according to police. Both vehicles continued onto DE Route 273 (Frenchtown Road) until they came upon an officer from the New Castle City Police Department who was in the process of conducting an unrelated vehicle stop, police said. The suspect vehicle then fled the area.
The male suspect who displayed the weapon (pictured in red shirt) is described as a black male. He was 25-30 years of age, 6’01”-6’04” tall, 170-180 lbs. and had a thin build.
