Berkeley, California (Thursday, October 26, 2017) - 10262017 45 Su

  On 10/19/2017 at approximately 5:00pm, the Berkeley Police responded to a reported incident of road rage on Ashby Avenue.  The victim told police that he and his passenger were driving eastbound on Ashby when his passenger yelled at the driver of a white Mercedes who was driving erratically.  When the victim's car stopped in traffic on the 2600 block, the driver of the Mercedes stopped next to them, exited his car and approached the passenger side.  The suspect then began punching the passenger through the open window.

The occupants of both cars exited their vehicles and a heated argument ensued.  At some point, the suspect got back into his car and the victim attempted to stop him from leaving by standing in front of his car.  The suspect pulled his car forward knocking the victim to the ground causing minor, non-life threatening injuries.  The suspect fled eastbound on Ashby Avenue.

The incident was recorded by the occupants of a car which was stopped directly behind the suspect's in traffic.  In the video, the suspect appears to be a white male adult, 45-50 years old, with brown hair, brown eyes, heavy build, and a slightly graying goatee wearing a plaid shirt and jeans. The suspect vehicle was described as a new model, white Mercedes CLS 63 with black and white dealer plates (see attached photos). 

The suspect is wanted for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Battery.  Community members who recognize the man pictured here are encouraged to call the Berkeley Police Homicide Detail at (510) 981-5741.
