Police: Man punches Jackson woman in I-94 road rage incident
A man punched a woman in the arm after trying to run her off of eastbound Interstate 94 Friday afternoon in a road rage incident, according to police.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said a 47-year-old Jackson woman was driving east on I-94 near State Street about 2 p.m. Friday when a vehicle tried to run her off the road twice. The two vehicles stopped on southbound South State Street and the man exited his vehicle and approached the woman.
“They were stopped at a traffic light at State Street and a witness observed this person getting out,” Bush said. “Obviously, he was not able to control his emotions and anger.”
According to a witness who spoke to police, the man yelled profanities as he approached the woman’s vehicle. Bush said the man reached into the car and punched the woman in the arm.
The man then walked around the front of the vehicle and kicked the passenger door of the vehicle several times before getting back into his vehicle and driving away, Bush said. The man was gone before police could arrive.
The woman sustained minor injuries. The man was driving a red 2008 Ford Fusion and police have the license plate number of the vehicle.
The case is still under investigation and will be turned over to the Ann Arbor Police Department’s detective bureau.
Any witnesses to this incident are encouraged to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP (773-2587).
