VAN NUYS (CBSLA.com) — Detectives Wednesday investigated a case of apparent road rage that was captured on video in Van Nuys.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, the incident unfolded on Tuesday evening in the 15400 block of Sherman Way.
The victim, Shahnam Asbaghi, told authorities the driver of a black Yukon XL — who appeared to be a chauffeur for a private company — closely trailed his vehicle on the 405 Freeway through Burbank.
Asbaghi said he became nervous and exited the freeway early on Sherman Way and the Yukon rear ended his vehicle. The driver then exited the SUV, punched Ashbaghi’s window and took off from the area in his vehicle.
In an effort to try and get the license plate number, Asbaghi followed the Yukon down the street.
At a red light, the driver once again exited his vehicle and approached Asbaghi. This time, however, he recorded the encounter on his cell phone.
In the video, the driver strikes Asbaghi’s window with what appears to be part of a car jack or a crowbar. He then goes back to his car after shouting profanities.
