PARKER, Colo. (CBS4)– Police in Parker are searching for the driver in a road rage incident that left the victim’s car seriously damaged after the suspect ripped out the driver’s side window.

The incident happened about 5 p.m. Sept. 20 in the Canterberry subdivision.

Josh Oestreich says it happened just in front of his home, and the young victim was a friend.

“He was in her face I want to say at least an inch away from her,” Oestreich said.

The victim told him the suspect was angry and believed she had been following too close behind. He pulled over and let her pass, following her until she came to a stop.

Police say after a heated argument, the victim tried to get back inside her car and that’s when the other driver broke her window.

“He body checked her car twice with his elbow after that he had like a complete stiff arm on her window and completely ripped it out,” Oestreich said.

Chris Muniz heard the commotion and ran outside to see what was happening. He says the when the man realized several people were watching he got in his car and sped away. Police say an adult woman and two children were with him.

Police say another neighbor snapped a photo of the suspect’s car, a red Hyundai sedan as it was driving way.

“I think it was brand new car he was in, so there was no license plate,” Muniz said.

Police say it’s best not to engage with other drivers in these types of situations.

“If they feel like they’re in a road rage incident to call police, not to pull over, not to get out of their vehicle, try to avoid confrontation,” said Parker Police spokeswoman Sherry Corcoran.

The suspect driver is described as a bald, white male in his 30s. Police believe he may live in the Canterberry subdivision.
