Eagan police seeking information on road rage incident

Police are seeking the public’s help in solving a Dec. 15 road-rage incident in Eagan that left a 62-year-old man with numerous injuries.

The incident began just before 6 p.m. Saturday when the victim, who was driving a small black car, honked his horn at a dark-colored SUV while driving on Cliff Road toward Pilot Knob, police say.

While they were stopped, an argument started between the man in the car and the man in the SUV. Both vehicles turned onto Pilot Knob Road and drove aggressively until reaching Diffley Road, where the man in the small car pulled into a gas station.

The SUV pulled up near the car, and both men got out of their vehicles. The man in the SUV allegedly threw the other man, a Vietnam veteran, into the car, smashed his head into the vehicle and knocked him unconscious. Police say the man sustained a broken wrist and nose.

The suspect fled as passersby approached the victim.

Police are looking for anyone who may have seen the suspect or his vehicle or witnessed the altercation.

Anyone with information may call Eagan police at (651) 675-5700 and ask for Detective Lisa Fancher.
