Woman reports road rage incident in Derry Twp.

Friday, March 28, 2014, 4:45 p.m.
 

Police are seeking a man who allegedly threatened to slice a female driver's throat Friday afternoon during a confrontation in the parking lot of the Eastern Westmoreland Career & Technology Center on Route 982 in Derry Township.

The victim told state police at Greensburg the man followed her to the parking lot, then left his car and brandished a knife as he approached her, screaming at her about a lack of respect for veterans.

According to the woman, the man said he would “slit her throat like he did to people back in Vietnam,” believed to be a reference to the Vietnam War.

The man placed his knife inside the driver's side window of the woman's car and pointed it at her after pushing down on the window to open it slightly, police said.

The man drove away south on Route 982.

The suspect was described as being an older man with gray hair and glasses, wearing a polo shirt and jeans. His car had a Pennsylvania disabled veteran license plate that started with “DV167,” police said.

The vehicle was silver, an older Toyota Camry or Ford Taurus.

State police did not say if there was an incident between the two that preceded the confrontation.

Anyone with information should call the state police at Greensburg at 724-832-3288.
