2 men arrested in road-rage fight

Glendale Two men were arrested after apparently getting into a fight triggered by road rage in a Glendale parking lot.

Oscar Brillo, 60, and Charles Robinson, 31, were taken into custody Monday night on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon following the incident in the 100 block of South Glendale Avenue, the Glendale News-Press reported.

Several witnesses called police just after 3 p.m. to report seeing a man pointing a knife at another man in the parking lot. The man with the knife was reportedly upset because the other man’s wife had honked at him twice when his car blocked her way.

The man with the knife allegedly stepped out of his car and approached the couple in a menacing manner. The other man leaned out of their car and yelled, “You better get back in your car!”

Then he got out of the car, and the first man allegedly pointed a 4- to 6-inch knife at him. Witnesses told police that the man who had yelled ran as the man with the knife chased him in the parking lot.

The man with the knife returned to his car and began to drive off, but a woman reportedly jumped in front of the car to stop him.

Other witnesses told police the man who had been chased got in front of the other man’s car, opened the driver’s-side door and punched him several times in the face.
