Police: Road Rage Leads To Stabbing In Tewksbury

TEWKSBURY (CBS) — Police in Tewksbury are searching for the person who stabbed a driver after a road rage incident.

Authorities say the incident happened around 3 p.m. on Industrial Avenue off of East Street. Lt. Ryan Columbus, of Tewksbury Police, said the incident started on I-93 North.

Glenn Gullotti was 26-year-old Dennis Keohane’s passenger. Gullotti said a younger driver was tailgating them on the highway and when they got off the highway the suspect pulled up next to them and swore at them through the window and “going crazy.”

Gullotti said Keohane dropped him off at work in the industrial park and drove off. Apparently the suspect was laying in wait just down the road.

WBZ-TV’s Ken MacLeod reports.

“I thought it was all done. Then five minutes later Dennis came back, blood all over him, and said he had been stabbed,” Gullotti said.

Keohane was stabbed multiple times in the back and neck, but officials say his injuries are not life threatening. He was taken to Lahey Clinic to be treated. He was released later Wednesday night.

There were no witnesses to the incident and police are looking for a dark, late model Honda Civic.

    What a psychotic fool. A simple exchange and this whack shack tries to kill someone. Too much television for him.

    Wait a second. Correct me if I’m wrong. How do you get stabbed unless you get out of the car or pull over? The way the news twisted this story, they made it sound scary, but the fact is had the victim used a little common sense and kept driving or called 911 instead of engaging he wouldn’t have been stabbed. I mean hey it sucks for him, but you gotta use your head. He was part of the problem to begin with. If someone is tailgating you just let them pass you. It isn’t worth your life. Yeah, they are the a-hole. But that’s Boston drivers for you. No need to risk your life to prove a stupid point.

    There is more to this story than what is being reported. Was the victim done with work for the day after dropping his boss off, or did he leave to go find the stabber. The victim also said on TV that they both got out of their cars and threw it down. You want to play with fire, you will get burned. AND NO! I AM NOT SAYING HE DESERVED TO GET STABBED, but he definitely escalated the situation.
