Police: Long Island man charged in road rage stabbing
MANORVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Police on Long Island have arrested a Nassau County man accused of stabbing a man in a road rage incident.
Gregory Spina, 43, was charged with second-degree assault and was in custody ahead of a Saturday court appearance.
It was not immediately clear whether he had a defense attorney.
Suffolk County police said the stabbing happened Thanksgiving Day in Manorville.
They said Spina was driving erratically and trying to pass another vehicle.
The 44-year-old driver of that vehicle pulled into a parking lot believing his vehicle had been struck.
Police said Spina also pulled over and stabbed the man once in the abdomen.
The man was seriously injured and taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Police said his wife was in the vehicle as well but wasn’t injured.
