Driver Pepper sprayed in Oshawa Road Rage Incident
On September 17th a motorist was assaulted in what was described by police as a road rage incident in Oshawa.
Durham Police are still trying to locate the perpetrator who was said to be a Caucasian male, believed to have been in his late teens, blond-haired cyclist.
The incident occurred around 2:15 pm on Simcoe Street South. It began when the cyclist confronted a van driver about obstructing the side walk with his vehicle. As the confrontation got heated up, the cyclist then sprayed pepper spray into the driver’s eyes and then immediately headed down Hall Street on his mountain bike. It was said that he was wearing a white ball cap, a black and white jacket and blue jeans at the time of the incident. The bike was said to have had a dark colored bag attached to the rear of its frame.
Police are urging the public to inform them if they have any information about the whereabouts of the perpetrator. Spraying someone with pepper spray is indeed assault, so one should seek a lawyer if having found themselves in a similar situation.
