WEST SENECA, N.Y. >> A man has been charged with assault after state police say he sliced another motorist’s face with a bayonet during a road rage encounter along a suburban Buffalo highway.
Troopers say 26-year-old Bryan Cirbus of West Valley sideswiped another man’s car Friday where Interstate 90 and Route 219 merge in West Seneca.
Police say both drivers pulled to the side of the highway, where Cirbus pulled out a bayonet. During the struggle he allegedly cut the other man’s face and hands and sliced his jacket while attempting to stab the man in the shoulder.
Cirbus was restrained by a woman riding with him, then left the scene before troopers arrived, according to police.
Cirbus later turned himself in. He’s due in court Tuesday night. Court officials didn’t know if he has a lawyer.
