A man assaulted a woman and bit her finger in an apparent road rage incident Wednesday evening, police said.
Markeater Holyroyd was driving down S. 15th Street with her son when Timothy Dubois 55, of Arlington, Virginia, drove up behind her and started shouting, “You’re in the wrong lane,” police said. He threw something at her car, but Holyroyd kept driving.
"The guy just was, you know, putting his middle finger up and he was trying to drive me off, you know, like, cut me off," Holyroyd told News4.
When she stopped down the road, police said Dubois came up to the driver's side window and assaulted her. Holyroyd opened the door in an attempt to push him away and ended up exiting her car. Dubois continued attacking her and bit her finger, drawing blood, before driving away.
"He put my finger in his mouth and he was just biting me," Holyroyd said.
Officers responding to reports of a fight found Dubois with a picture a witness took of his license plate.
