Hunt Bat-Bash Road Rager

By Liz Goff
Police are searching for a motorist who attacked a delivery truck driver with a baseball bat in a case of road rage outside an Astoria hardware store on March 25.

Cops said the 43-year-old victim left his truck blocking the service road of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway while he made a delivery to Johnstone Hardware in Astoria on March 25.

When the driver in a car behind the truck told the victim to move the vehicle so he could get by, the delivery man waved and said he would only be a few minutes, police said.

The enraged car driver jumped out of his vehicle and hit the victim with the baseball bat, punched him several times in the face and fled the scene, police said.

The victim was not seriously injured.

The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, 20-25-years-old, approximately 6-feet-tall and 160 pounds, with dark hair and a moustache.
