Woman charged following road rage incident in Gungahlin

Charged with assault

A 31-year-old Mawson woman will face the ACT Magistrates Court today after a road rage incident where she allegedly assaulted the male driver of another vehicle while travelling with children in her car.

About 10am yesterday (Sunday, 19 May 2024), a man in a silver Mitsubishi Outlander was driving along Horse Park Drive in Amaroo when the driver of a silver Ford Mondeo became agitated when he stopped at a red light.

He was overtaken by the Ford and the female driver then allegedly started driving in an erratic manner, speeding up and slowing down while she was in front of him.

While stopped at another set of traffic lights, the woman got out of her car and allegedly assaulted the man, pulling him out of his vehicle while punching and spitting on him. She then took his car keys and threw them away before leaving the scene.

After speaking with the victim and witnesses, police attended the woman’s residence and spoke to her before charging her with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and driving while suspended.

Police would also ask anyone who witnessed the incident or the vehicle being driven around this time, or may have dash-cam footage, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.  Please quote 7752613. Information can be provided anonymously.
