Man charged in Roseville road rage, stabbing incident
A 34-year-old Roseville man has been charged in a road rage incident that led to a stabbing Friday, police said.
Steven Krenz has been charged with a count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, according to Roseville Police officials. If convicted of the felony charge, he faces up to 10 years in prison.
He was arraigned Monday in 39th District Court in Roseville. A judge ordered him to be held on a $50,000 bond and scheduled his next court appearance for Aug. 23.
The incident happened at about 5:30 p.m. Friday. Police said two men were traveling east on Interstate 696 near Mound Road in Warren in two separate cars, a 2001 silver Oldsmobile Intrigue and a 2006 silver Nissan Altima.
Both motorists angered each other and exited at 11 Mile near I-94, according to police. Both later told officers the other was driving aggressively and there was contact between their vehicles that caused minor damage to both cars.
Once they exited the freeway, both men crossed over to eastbound 11 Mile and turned on to a residential street.
They stopped their vehicles, both drivers got out of their cars and an argument began, police said. Punches were thrown and Krenz allegedly produced a knife and assaulted the other man with it, officials said.
The victim, a 49-year-old Roseville man, was taken to a hospital to be treated for lacerations on his arms, police said.
Krenz fled the scene, but a witness provided his vehicle's license plate number. Police went to his home where he was arrested without incident, according to police.
