Road rage led to stabbing, police say

State police are looking for two suspects in a stabbing that occurred during an apparent road rage incident in Lancaster County.

The victim, a 44-year-old Paradise man, was significantly stabbed in the neck and side during an altercation near Route 741 and Paradise Lane in Paradise Township at around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

The victim told police that he was cut off by a red sedan at Route 41 and Bridge Street in Gap, then exchanged gestures with the occupants of the car for several miles until they were slowed by construction.

“Two people exited the red sedan, the victim exited his truck and an altercation ensued, and at that point the victim was stabbed,” Trooper Gerard Sauers said. “The moral is try to avoid it. If someone cuts you off and you are not involved in an accident, just let it go.”

The victim was transported to Lancaster General Hospital. Police said he was awake and talking to investigators at the hospital, but his medical condition was not available.

Police are looking for two men between the ages of 20 and 30, driving a red sedan with Texas plates.

Anyone with information may call state police in Lancaster at 717-290-1965.
