FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -- Police are looking for a suspect who is accused of stabbing a victim during a road rage incident near a Fredericksburg intersection Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators said at approximately 1:00 p.m. they were called to Mary Washington Hospital for a reported stabbing at the intersection of Plank Road and Huntington Hills Lane.

The victim reported that he was in the left-turn lane of Plank Road when he and an unknown older white male driving a moped got into a heated argument.

“The driver of the moped followed the victim onto Huntington Hills Lane. The victim stopped his vehicle and approached the suspect. The suspect then took out a knife, stabbed the victim, and left in an unknown direction,” said a police spokesperson.

The victim was taken to Mary Washington Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The suspect is described as a thin white male in his mid 50's with short gray hair, a scruffy gray-colored beard, and a dark-colored tattoo on his left forearm.

He was last seen wearing a dark blue tank top, dark blue cargo shorts, and a blue open-face helmet.

Police say there was also a female passenger on the moped. She is described as having long blonde hair and was wearing a white or light-gray tank top and cut off jean shorts. It is believed she also had a dark tattoo on her left thigh.

The moped is described as medium-blue in color with a milk cart strapped to the back.
