Man allegedly takes road rage too far, pulls gun on victim

An as yet unidentified man was arrested Friday night after allegedly pulling a gun on someone in a bout of road rage.

At 4:36 p.m. Friday, Ramapo police officers were called to Rt. 45 in Pomona to respond to a report of a man menacing another person with a handgun.  The police met with the victim and determined it was likely an instance of “road rage” that sparked the confrontation.

Police said the suspected assailant and the victim had stopped their cars and then the suspect approached the victim’s vehicle and pulled out what appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun and pointed it at the victim’s face.  The suspect then drove away from the scene.

The suspect was located and arrested at his residence and charged with menacing in the second degree, a misdemeanor.  The Ramapo Police Department was assisted in this incident by numerous Haverstraw police officers.

Ramapo PD said they have yet to identify the arrested man because they are considering additional charges against him.
