Man charged after alleged 'road rage' knife attack

An Alexandria man has been charged with malicious wounding after what Fairfax police called a "road rage incident."

Around 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Fairfax police said in a Wednesday news release, two drivers pulled to the side of a ramp leading to I-495 near S. Van Dorn Street after a one driver thought he had been cut off by the other.

The men, both 54, exited their vehicles, police said. One man, Keith Lewis of Alexandria, allegedly produced a knife and cut the other man twice on the arm.

The victim left the scene and drove to a nearby hospital, police said. Lewis stayed on the scene until police came and arrested him; he was charged and taken to jail, according to police.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked call Det. Douglas Middlebrooks at 703-922-0894 ext. 2233 or Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131. You can also call Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, reach them online or text “TIP187” plus a message to CRIMES/274637.

What juvenile behavior. Couldn't just be a man and let it go, huh? Had to get even and cut the guy.

I hope they take away this dude's license; he isn't mentally fit to share the road with other drivers.

How is he a moron? had he fled the scene then it would have been a full fledged man hunt and the whole Fairfax police department would have been out looking for him. I think by him staying at the scene means he wants his side heard, how do we know? maybe the other guy had a knife or crow bar but just wasn't quick enough to us it and got slashed. I think they are both childish, this area is getting way to crowded for this kind of nonsense.

This is second incident in a month in Farifax county related to roag rage voilence involving shooting or stabbing. It is time elected officials take serious steps to reduce congestion in the, having lost jobs, money or perhaps house people are already on the edge then they have to put up with traffic mess.

They both pulled over, so what's the problem? Your so-called "victim" was looking for a fight and he got one.

They both should be commended for dealing with it on the shoulder. Move On.
