The 68-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon last week, stemming from a June incident

REDWOOD CITY, CA — According to authorities, after about three months of unsuccessful attempts to locate the suspect involved in a June road rage incident, a Redwood City police officer recognized and arrested a man in connection with the altercation on Wednesday.

The first incident occurred in June, when the 68-year-old suspect cut off another driver on the road and began cursing from the vehicle, according to police. They both got out of their cars, and the suspect lunged at the victim with a large kitchen knife.

The police did not say how the June incident ended, but they did say the victim was unharmed.

Police used the man’s license plate registration information to locate him and connect him to his home in East Palo Alto after being alerted to the incident. Several attempts to locate him were unsuccessful, according to police.

According to authorities, the man was found on Wednesday when he was contacted during an unrelated call for service. He was recognized by the responding officer from the June incident and arrested on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon.
