Woman allegedly punched in face after honking at pedestrian crossing street too slowly

York Regional Police are searching for a pedestrian who allegedly punched a female driver in Vaughan after she honked at him in an intersection, and have released a dashcam photo of a suspect

Police say they have exhausted all leads and are appealing to the public to help identify the man.

The alleged assault took place Tuesday, May 31st just after 1 p.m. when a woman driving on Cordova Drive stopped at a red light on Bathurst Street, police said in a release.

While she was stopped, a man was seen crossing the intersection, police said. But when the light turned green, the man remained in the intersection and the woman reportedly honked her car’s horn.

That’s when police say the pedestrian walked up to the woman’s window and punched her in the face.

The driver then stepped out of her car, and was assaulted a second time, police allege.

Police say the driver was not injured and declined medical attention.
