Intoxicated man assaults 17-year-old

August 1, 2011

An assault/road rage incident was reported July 27 in Honesdale, PA. A 17-year-old male was on his way to aid his sister who had run out of fuel, when another vehicle began to tailgate him and hit the car’s rear end.

Both cars pulled over and the 17-year-old found the male driver of the vehicle to apparently be intoxicated and belligerent. The man, called the 17-year-old several profanities. Soon after, the man attacked the 17-year-old, punching him in the face and head. The male fled the scene.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late teens or early twenties with a slim build. He has dirty blonde hair and a goatee.

He drove a small compact vehicle, possible a foreign model, low to the ground with a wing on the back.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PSP Honesdale at 253-7126
