Road-Rage Incident Leads To Punctured Tire | Crime
A road-rage victim who had one of her tires flattened was visibly shaken when an officer arrived to take a report Thursday afternoon.
The 27-year-old woman had pulled into a nearby gas station after the driver of a purple Cadillac held up a knife, got out of the car and took the blade to her tire.
The incident occurred at about 12:40 p.m. near the intersection of North Stoughton Road and East Washington Avenue.
The woman said the man had slammed on his brakes. She said she did the same to avoid ramming him from behind.
The woman pulled up next to the man and flipped him off while mouthing derogatory words in his direction, police said.
She said the man yelled back and eventually started waiving the knife before he got out of the car and punctured her tire.
The man was white, in his mid-20s, about 5 feet 11 inches tall, about 135 pounds, with brown hair, hazel eyes and facial stubble.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 608-266-6014.
