Police suspect road rage may have been a factor in an alleged assault that led to a woman being arrested in Sechelt on Friday, Nov. 27.
Sunshine Coast RCMP say they received multiple calls at about 3:45 p.m. regarding a physical assault that was linked to an incident that started on Highway 101 near McDonald’s Restaurant.
“A female driver exited her red Oldsmobile Alero at the intersection of Dolphin and Sunshine Coast Highway and there was a heated verbal exchange between her and the occupants of a light-coloured Nissan Sentra,” police said in a release.
“The Sentra drove on when the light went green and parked near the Money Mart in the 5500 block of Wharf Avenue. It is alleged that the accused female followed them and assaulted an occupant of the Sentra and threatened another. Police arrested the accused and the investigation is ongoing.”
Anyone who witnessed the incident, or captured it on their phone or dash camera, is asked to contact the Sunshine Coast RCMP at 604-885-2266 and reference file number 2020-8201.
