Road Rage Suspect Caught On Video
Precinct 5 investigators obtained an arrest warrant for a Katy man caught on video damaging another car in a fit of road rage. Randu Salgado, 43, faces charges of assault and criminal mischief following the incident earlier this month. He turned himself in today and is currently out on bond.
The victim, an 18-year-old Brookshire resident, tells deputies Salgado became enraged when he was unable to pass by in the emergency lane during a traffic jam on the afternoon of February 1. Salgado, pictured in the video, began aggressively tailgating the victim who started recording the incident on his phone.
At that time, Salgado sped alongside the victim’s car and smashed his side view mirror with an unknown object.
The two drivers exited at Barker Cypress Road and proceeded to a parking lot where Salgado, rather than exchanging information, punched the victim in the stomach and drove away. The victim also suffered a cut to his arm in the attack.
