Driver assaulted near Agassiz following road rage incident

RCMP ask for public’s help identifying suspects involved in Highway 9 incident

RCMP are asking the public to help them identify two men involved in a road rage incident near Agassiz.

On Oct. 1 around 4 p.m., a motorist was assaulted at a service station near the Highway 9 roundabout. The suspects left the scene before police arrived and are believed to be associated to a purple SUV.

“We are reaching out to the public for assistance in identifying the individuals in the photograph,” said Cpl. Mike Rail, spokesperson for the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment. “Police have not ruled out that the incident may have spilled over from an earlier exchange between motorists.”

Anyone with information that can help identify the individuals is urged to contact the Agassiz RCMP at 604-796-2211 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

RCMP remind the public to avoid aggressive driving behaviour and to remain calm behind the wheel.

Their tips to avoid and deal with road rage include:

· Drivers make mistakes – yelling and rude gestures only exasperate the situation.

· A vehicle horn is meant to warn other motorists – not vent your anger.

· You can’t control how aggressive drivers behave – you can control your behaviour.

· Report aggressive and dangerous drivers to the police
