SARASOTA, Fla. - A stabbing incident that was originally thought be road rage was the result of comments made by a passenger in a Jeep to a female driver of a Nissan, Sarasota deputies say.
A male passenger in the Nissan threw items at the Jeep and both vehicles pulled over.
A confrontation ensued and the Nissan's male passenger cut Jonathon Cetin, 19, on the back with a knife.
The male got back into the Nissan as the driver of the Jeep, Jason Akers, 31, positioned himself in front of the Nissan to keep the driver from leaving, deputies said.
He was hit by the car and stabbed in the hand when he tried to grab the passenger side. He fell, injuring his back.
Authorities are still looking for the red Nissan.
