According to the driver of a grey Mercedes car, their vehicle was travelling on Lakehurst Road around 12:30 p.m. when it was passed by a pickup truck, police say.

The driver reportedly claims the pickup truck then abruptly stopped and blocked the entire roadway. Two people — a man and a teenage boy — then exited the truck and approached the Mercedes, according to police.

One of the suspects allegedly reached into an open window and struck the driver of the Mercedes in the face, causing minor injuries, according to police.
