It's random timing, but on the heels of Glendale falling to the bottom of the "Best Drivers Report"and Los Angeles being named the second most stressful city in the country, comes this report about road rage. Police are searching for a man who got out of his car at a red light at a Glendale intersection and attacked a couple through the sunroof of their car two weeks ago, according to the Glendale News-Press.
"The Sherman Oaks couple was waiting at the light on Glendale Avenue to make the left when the motorist tried cutting in front of them, but the light turned red," the paper said. The man then got out of his car and started screaming at them. When the light turned green, the couple moved with the man following behind. At the next red light, he climbed on top of the car and began hitting them through the sunroof. The couple began to drive forward and he eventually got off, but not before breaking a side mirror.
Police are asking for help in finding the man. On the same day in a separate incident, a man was stabbed in the stomach in Glendale after by another motorist who cut him off on the freeway.
