Don't mess with road rage

Gwen Sadler

A woman driving through the quiet neighborhood of Ashbrook recently found herself a victim of road rage. The woman was traveling in the 15400 block of Featherchase Drive when another driver, also a woman, forced her to pull over her car. The suspect threatened to physically assault the victim, and identified herself as a police officer. When the victim asked for identification, however, the suspect refused to produce any.

The victim drove away, but was followed by the suspect. Eventually, the suspect turned off the road. She is described as a white female in her 50s, who is 5 feet 2 inches tall and has short, curly, blonde or strawberry blonde hair. She was driving a gold Nissan Maxima.
