Motorist rolls down window, is stabbed during South Pasadena traffic dispute

South Pasadena police are searching for a suspect who escalated a traffic dispute Monday evening into a stabbing that left a female motorist wounded.

The stabbing occurred at 8:19 p.m. at Monterey Road and Oak Hill Avenue. The South Pasadena woman was stabbed in the hand after she rolled down the window of her car following a traffic dispute with the suspect.

The suspect is described as a male Asian or Latino in his early 20s, about 5-foot-10 and weighing 150 pounds, wearing a tan jacket and shorts. He was last seen fleeing the location northbound on Monterey in a dark blue early 2000s Toyota Corolla.

South Pasadena police are asking any witnesses to this incident and or anyone with information on the suspect to contact detectives at 626-403-7280 or the South Pasadena Police Department Watch Commander at 626-403-7265.

Ppl please let these idots have the road, it is not worth your life or bodily injury.

Let's help the police. hell let's help ourselves.
Let's track this piece of trash down and get him behind bars as soon as possible. We must rid our region of these type of people- they are everywhere. There is no excuse for this type of behavior.

It don't pay to be mouthy to some road rager.

Perhaps having personal protection with you in your car may prevent the scumbag thugs from killing or injuring you. Ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure.

Don't demand the right of way, even if it is yours. It's safer and wiser.

Hopefully, they catch the guy soon -- there is no excuse for any man, no matter how horrid the female (or male) driver is, to resort to violence. There is no place for rage on the road, only rules and discipline in order for motorist safety to prevail. Giving into your rage or provoking others can only lead to accidents or unnecessary deaths.


i dont agree with this guys violence, nut seriously people, stand at a corner during rush hour, and just watch the intollerance around u...people just need to be more courtious,its ok to make mistakes, and theres no reason to provoke someone, because they made u one car lenght later,just be patient
