ALHAMBRA — A 19-year-old driver was stabbed by another motorist in an apparent road rage attack Thursday.
The assault took place around 7 p.m. on Fremont and Hellman avenues. Police don’t know yet what caused the road rage.
Alhambra police Lt. Dan Rodriguez said an older model red BMW and an Acura Integra were stopped at a red light on Fremont Avenue. The BMW was on one lane and the Integra in the next lane.
Rodriguez said the BMW’s driver was upset when he got out of the car. He walked over to the driver side window of the Acura, pulled out a pocket knife and began stabbing the 19-year-old, the lieutenant said.
The suspect returned to the BMW and fled the scene.
The victim sustained several lacerations to his arm and a laceration to his face, Rodriguez said. He added that a second man in the Acura wasn’t injured.
The suspect was described as a white man in his 30s, standing 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds. He wore a red T-shirt and brown shorts.
