Abbotsford Police seek witnesses to road-rage incident with driver who had knife

Incident with Camaro driver took place May 13 at No. 3 Road and Highway 1

The Abbotsford Police Department (APD) is asking for witnesses to a road-rage incident that resulted in a man being cut with a knife last Wednesday (May 13).

Sgt. Judy Bird said the incident began at about 4 p.m., when a silver Chevrolet Camaro was seen driving erratically eastbound on North Parallel Road from Atkinson Road.

The driver of the Camaro was speeding and passing multiple vehicles, Bird said.

She said the Camaro travelled over the highway overpass at No. 3 Road and pulled over on the westbound Highway 1 on-ramp.

Two other vehicles pulled up beside the Camaro and the occupants were involved in a verbal altercation, Bird said.

Another witness to the erratic driving behaviour pulled up behind the vehicles and got out to talk to the Camaro driver.

Bird said that, as the man approached the Camaro, the Camaro’s driver got out of the vehicle and assaulted the witness.

“The witness raised his arms in self-defence and was able to yield off multiple swings before the driver suddenly got into the Camaro and left the scene,” she said.

Bird said the witness noticed that his sleeve was cut open and he was bleeding from a deep cut to his elbow. A black lock-blade knife was on the ground where he had been attacked.

Anyone with information about the incident or who has CCTV or dash cam video of North Parallel Road between Atkinson Road and No. 3 Road between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. on May 13 is asked to contact the APD at 604-859-5225.
