Medford, NJ (WTXF) - The Medford Township Police Department announced the arrest of a man in connection with a road rage incident that left a woman injured in February.
According to police, 46-year-old Christopher Cahall, of Delran, was arrested Thursday and charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
“The suspect got out, brandished a baseball bat and began yelling at the victim,” said Lt. Art Waterman, with the Medford Township Police.
Surveillance cameras captured the man’s car back in February as he allegedly pursued the woman through three municipalities, tailgating and taunting from Mount Laurel through Lumberton and into Medford Township.
“She did not sustain life-threatening injuries. However, the trauma in having someone come after you like that has really terrified the victim,” explained Lt. Waterman.
Lt. Waterman says the young woman admits it all started in an exchange of words in traffic between the two that really got out of hand.
“It is an unusual case, one of those where you have stuff like this goes on every day. This one seemed to escalate for some reason and cause the suspect to become irate and to come after the victim,” said Lt. Waterman.
