Ceres police say the drive was delivering packages when a car stopped in the middle of the street on McNeil Drive and blocked him for a bit. The car eventually moved and the FedEx driver continued on.
However, a little while later, the FedEx driver noticed that same car following him. Then, at the intersection of Rose Avenue and Glasgow Drive, the car swerved around the truck and blocked him again.
The suspect then got out of his car and started yelling at the FedEx driver. Eventually, the suspect approached the driver’s side door, prompting the FedEx driver to take off.READ MORE: Pressure Behind The Wheel: Sacramento Mover Drove Historic Victorian Mansion Through San Francisco
It was at this point that the suspect threw a large knife at the FedEx truck – shattering the driver’s side door window. The driver was sprayed with broken glass, while the knife landed on the truck’s floorboard.
The FedEx driver was not seriously hurt, police say. Two witnesses also reportedly saw the incident when the suspect threw the knife.
