Road rage incident is crime of the week

Crimestoppers crime of the week and Wednesday court report


On September 12, a Penticton resident was driving down Main Street and accidently cut off another driver operating a dark colored (possibly black) with light colored (blue)stripes  Honda CRV.

Gestures were exchanged and the driver of the dark colored vehicle tried unsuccessfully to lure the other driver into stopping and fighting.  This driver attempted to lose the dark vehicle and went to the Real Canadian Wholesale Club to shop.  He noticed the driver of the dark vehicle in this store but saw him leave.  The victim finished his shopping and went out to his vehicle where he put his groceries away at which time the dark colored vehicle pulled up behind him, blocking his exit.  He approached the vehicle and was pepper sprayed by the driver (wearing a FOX jacket and toque).  Another woman in the parking lot was also sprayed.

Anyone with information on the person driving the dark CRV is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477(TIPS) or go to our website for other anonymous methods of passing along information.  Should your information lead to an arrest, you may qualify for a cash reward up to $2,000.  Crime Stoppers is not a police program and does not subscribe to call display.  You never have to go to court.  We don’t want your name – just your info.
