Police say a Wareham man slammed another driver’s head into the hood of a car several times during a road rage dispute.

It happened Wednesday, July 3 at 1:15 p.m. on Plymouth Avenue. 

Edward Robinson, 45, of East Wareham, was reported to have jumped from a car, punched the other male twice, grabbed him by the hair, and slammed his head into the hood of a car several times.

A neighbor who witnessed the incident then came out of his house trying to assist the man being attacked. At that point, Robinson now armed himself with a knife threatening the second male, before fleeing the scene on foot. 

Officers Steven Joy and Charles Pillsbury soon found Robinson and placed him under arrest. He was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, vandalizing property, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery, and malicious damage to a motor vehicle, according to Wareham Acting Police Chief John Walcek.

Robinson was transported to police headquarters for booking before being taken to Wareham District Court.
