Suspect arrested after 2 stabbed in Coldwater road rage incident
COLDWATER, Mich. —
A suspect was arrested after stabbing two motorists during a road rage incident gone bad in Coldwater at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, May 16.
Officers were dispatched to the crossroads of Michigan Avenue and Hull Street to a report of a hit-and-run accident. When they arrived, they had learned that two subjects had been stabbed by a fleeing motorist.
Officials learned the incident began at the crossroads of U.S. 12 and Sprague Street, where the 22-year-old suspect, who was a passenger in a white SUV driven by a 27-year-old female, exited his vehicle to approach the victim's Ford F-150. The driver of the Ford, a 39-year-old man, was stabbed in the chest.
The victim followed the suspect to the area of Hull Street and Michigan Avenue and that's when both vehicles collided. The suspect ran toward the passenger of the F-150, a 47-year-old male, before stabbing him and fleeing again.
Police later found the suspect west of the Coldwater city limits. He is currently being held at the Branch County Jail on charges of attempted murder, two counts.
