Police: Road rage leads to confrontation, stabbing
A road rage incident Friday in Roseville escalated to a confrontation that left one man with stab wounds and another behind bars, police said.
Both motorists had apparently angered each other while driving near eastbound Interstate 696 and Mound at about 5:45 p.m. then exited at 11 Mile near I-94, investigators said in a statement. It’s unclear if they had been involved in an accident.
One of the drivers, identified as a 48-year-old Roseville man, stopped his Nissan near Ridgewood and Waldorf. The other, a 34-year-old man in an Oldsmobile, also stopped, according to the release.
Both men then got out and started arguing, which led to a scuffle. The Oldsmobile driver pulled out a knife and cut the other man’s arms before fleeing, authorities said.
Emergency personnel arrived at the scene and transported the Nissan driver to a local hospital, where he was treated for wounds to both arms.
The other motorist was arrested at his home in Roseville. He was being held at the city police department Friday night.
The investigation is ongoing.
