The suspect followed the victim and overtook him by passing him on the wrong side of the road. The suspect abruptly turned in front of the victim and came to a sudden stop, causing the victim to stop. Both the victim and suspect exited their vehicles. The suspect came out brandishing a hammer in a threatening manner and yelling at the victim.

The victim, fearing for his safety, returned to his vehicle and drove away. The suspect followed him for a short distance, but then drove away. The victim drove home and called the police. Officers responded to the area where the suspect was last seen, but did not locate him or any witnesses. The suspect was described as a male Hispanic in his late twenties. The investigation is continuing.
