HOUSTON - Houston police are looking for a suspect in an apparent road rage incident that’s now trending on social media.
A woman is seen on video reaching through a car window to hit another woman. The video was posted on TikTok @poisongirlfriend.
Houston Police say it happened Saturday at about 4:20 p.m. on Bellaire Blvd in Houston’s Chinatown. Police say they are investigating but don’t yet have a suspect identity.
Police say the woman being attacked through the window is 20-year-old Yannsy Vasquez-Rodriguez from Houston.
Police say she told them she was trying to merge right when a gray SUV slowed down to let her in, then sped back up, almost causing a crash. The driver got out and attacked through the window, punching and scratching before taking off.
The owner of a surveillance camera that faces the crime scene told FOX 26 they’re waiting for police to view the video before releasing it to the public.
