DALLAS, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) — A 60-year-old man has been arrested for stabbing a driver “several times” after a minor car crash in southeast Dallas Saturday night, police said.
Clarence Fletcher, 60, was arrested Sunday afternoon and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
At about 9:20 p.m. Feb. 29, police responded to a stabbing call in the 400 block of Satinwood Drive.
When officers arrived, the victim stated he was driving down the road when a car pulled out in front of him causing him to collide into another car. Police said when the victim got out of his car to view the damages, Fletcher — along with several other suspects — approached him and began assaulting him.
The victim was stabbed multiple times and was transported to a local hospital by Dallas Fire-Rescue where he remains in critical condition.
A motive for the crime is unknown at this time.
