Man victim of road rage on the parkway

A man driving Saturday afternoon in Woodbridge was punched in the face by a man whom he had just blown his horn at to communicate that a traffic light had changed to green.

At around 1:15 p.m., the 47-year-old victim had waited several seconds after the light changed before honking, then drove around the other car, Prince William police said.

The other car, a silver 2002 Nissan Altima, followed him and both vehicles stopped at the intersection of Minnieville Road and Prince William County Parkway, police said. A black man who police described as 30 to 35, 5 foot 10 inches tall, 180 pounds with a goatee, got out of the Altima, which was driven by a white woman, and began banging on the victim’s side window.

The victim told him to go back to his car, the banging continued, then the victim rolled down his window to tell him to leave and the other man grabbed him by the shirt punched him.
