Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Detectives are hoping to identify a motorist who confronted and assaulted a 16-year-old in a road rage incident. This evening around 8:00 p.m., officers were summoned to the area of Willoughby Station Boulevard and South Greenhill Road to investigate an assault. A 16-year-old motorist was assaulted by another motorist, who approached the victim’s side window, grabbed their glasses, and struck their face. After the assault, the suspect left the area. The suspect approached the victim because he thought the victim was following too close.
The suspect was described as a white male in their 20’s. At the time of the incident, he had dark brown or black hair, a beard trimmed short, and was wearing a black shirt. He was driving a 2-door or 4-door, gray Toyota Tacoma pick-up truck with a white license plate that had red letters.
