Road Rage Leads to Assault
• A 21-year-old Centralia man is accused of assaulting a fellow motorist following a road rage incident that ended near the 9000 block of Cullens Road Southeast at about 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28. The victim said the incident started near the Red Wind Casino where the road goes from two lanes to one. The driver continued east on State Route 510 toward Yelm when he noticed a white Audi continuing to follow him very closely. The two vehicles maneuvered back and forth before the Audi sped past him on the 510 alternate. The Audi then stopped and blocked the roadway on Cullens Road. The driver, later identified as Isaac Symone Pereira, then approached the victim’s vehicle and punched him in the face. In a subsequent police interview, Pereira denied the assault, though the victim captured images of his face and vehicle licence before and after the assault. Pereira was issued a criminal citation.
