By on August 15, 2017 in WNDB News

Daytona Beach, FL – The Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) is investigating three separate incidents of road rage in the area which occurred last week, each involving a driver pulling out a gun and pointing it at another driver.

One case occurred at approximately 1:30 PM on August 7. Police responded to Trader Joes at 2388 Mason Ave. in reference to an aggravated assault. The victim, Alan Freeman of Daytona Beach, says that he was driving his red Acura. He was at the intersection near the corner of Nova Rd. and Mason Ave. when he got into a road rage incident with a black man with gold teeth who was driving a black Chevy Malibu with tag number Y81KGZ.

The man pulled out a black and silver semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at Freeman. Freeman reported that he feared for his life and wishes to press charges. Police searched the area but were unable to find the suspect. Police even went to the registered address of the driver of the Malibu but were unable to locate the car or the driver.

Another road rage incident took place on August 8 at about 7 PM near the intersection of W. International Speedway Blvd. and S. Nova Rd. Tonia Williams, of Daytona Beach, was driving with her two children in the car. Williams pulled onto S. Nova Rd. from Orange Ave. and noticed black GMC Sierra pickup truck that was speeding along the road. Williams said in the police reports that she may have cut the truck off.

The GMC, driven by a light skinned black or Hispanic woman in her late 20’s or early 30’s with dark and curly hair, passed Williams on the right and stopped at the light on ISB. The woman rolled down her window, yelled at Williams and used an expletive. According to the police reports, Williams asked the woman not to disrespect her and suggested if she wanted to talk to step out of the vehicle. The woman responded by pointing a black semi-automatic handgun at Williams and saying, “I don’t fight with my hands.”

The woman made a U-turn and drove off. Williams says she feared for her safety and  the safety of her two children. Williams tried to follow the suspect just enough to get the tag information off the GMC. Her daughter was able to take a picture of the suspect’s vehicle. Williams does wish to pursue criminal charges. Police attempted but were not yet able to locate the vehicle or the suspect.

The third road rage case occurred on August 11 at approximately 10 PM near the intersection of Nova Rd. and Mason Ave. in Daytona Beach. Austin Massey and his girlfriend, Carli Navas, originally from St. Petersburg, FL, were traveling from beach side and wanted to stop for food at the KFC.

When Massey pulled out from the KFC parking lot onto Mason Ave., he pulled in front of a red Chevy Camero. Massey says in the police reports that the Chevy intentionally tried to speed up so he could not get in the turn lane. Massey stuck out his middle finger at the driver of the Camero, who was a black man about 20-years-old. The man pulled out a black pistol, pointed it at Massey and Navas, then sped off northbound. Massey and Navas do intend to press charges. Police were unable to locate the suspect or the vehicle at the time.

All three cases are ongoing and are still under investigation.
