Man sought in alleged road rage incident

NEWTON

Newton police last night were seeking the driver of a car from Maine who allegedly kicked out the window of another motorist in a violent display of road rage on a crowded commercial street.

The alleged assault sent a 23-year-old Boston woman to the hospital for treatment of cuts to her face from shards of flying glass.

Police said they were looking for the driver of a black 1996 Honda Civic with Maine plate number 5401 ND. The driver was described as a male, about 5 feet 7 inches, and wearing a white T-shirt and jeans.

"If somebody sees that plate, we urge them to contact the Newton Police Department or their local police and make them aware," Lieutenant Bruce Apotheker, a Newton police spokesman, tells the Globe today. "This is unacceptable behavior."
