Allegheny Township police say they’ve identified the male motorcyclist wanted in connection with a road rage incident that occurred on Sunday, July 21, 2019.

Allegheny Township police said that, with the public’s help, they identified a man allegedly involved in a road rage assault.

Police said the incident took place around 5:45 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Route 56 and Hyde Park Road.

A male motorcyclist allegedly followed another vehicle from the Vandergrift area to the intersection.

Police said the motorcyclist dismounted his bike, went to the other vehicle and assaulted its driver. He got back on the motorcycle and followed the driver toward Kiski Area High School before turning around back toward Route 56.

Police want witnesses to come forward. A photo of the motorcyclist and his female passenger was posted on the department’s Facebook page as they sought to identify them.

Police Chief Duane Fisher confirmed that police have identified the man but refused to give his name until charges are filed.

Anyone with information about the incident can call 724-845-9410 to speak to an on-duty officer or leave a message for Chief Duane Fisher at 724-236-0200.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
