CLINTON, NY - Kirkland Police are investigating an alleged road rage incident that started in Utica and ended with fists flying on the Village Green in Clinton.
Police tell NewsChannel 2 a female driver may have cut off another woman in traffic on State Route 12 in Utica. The woman who believed she was cut off followed the driver to Clinton, where a confrontation reportedly turned violent.
“…approached her on the driver's side of the vehicle, ripped open the door, grabbed her by the hair and punched her with a closed fist six times in the mouth, which she sustained injury to her nose and her mouth area," said Officer Shawn Occhipinti.
Police are looking for the suspect, described as an older white female, who is said to be driving a four-door, black sports sedan with the letters “HTK” on the New York license plate.
Police say depending on the victim's injuries, the suspect could be charged with harassment or assault.
