Authorities in Georgia are trying to track down a motorist they believe stabbed a man multiple times during a recent bout of road rage.
According to WSB, 39-year-old Jesse Cole said he was stopped at an intersection on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Sugar Hill on Monday when another motorist stopped beside him and emerged from his vehicle.
Investigators believe the suspect quickly made his way to Cole’s car door and began stabbing him multiple times.
According to his brother, the driver was left with serious injuries from numerous stab wounds all over his body.
“The man cut him from his lower tricep just past his elbow,” Darrell Cole said. “That was just the initial blow.”
From there, he said the suspect “cut my brother’s stomach two more times which initially spilled his intestines” before stabbing him multiple times “in his backside.”
Police say they “don’t know who the primary aggressor” was in the road rage that led to the confrontation, “however the suspect is the one ultimately responsible for this.”

Before driving away, Darrell Cole claims the suspect said he wanted the victim to “bleed out” and addressed him using a vulgarity.
Despite his injuries, Jesse Cole was reportedly able to capture a cellphone picture of the suspect’s vehicle. Now police are using that image in an attempt to make an arrest in connection with the stabbing.
Authorities describe the suspect as a white male in his 30s who weighs about 160 pounds and stands roughly 5 feet 8 inches tall. He might be driving a blue Mazda Protege 5.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact investigators at 770-513-5300 or leave a tip by calling Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
