At about 2:30 pm the Washington State Patrol (WSP) responded to a report of an incident that occurred Southbund on State Route 509 to Eastbound South 188th in the SeaTac, Washington area.
"When troopers arrived they found a victim that had been physically assaulted after what was determined to be a road rage incident," said a WSP statement.
The victim in this case, a 54-year old man was driving a silver Nissan Pathfinder southbound on SR 509 and getting ready to take the ramp that leads to eastbound South 188th Street, while a white 2009 Audi A4 was traveling the same direction in the lane that leads to Westbound South188th.

"At the last second, the Audi cut the gore point and cut the victim off causing him to hit his brakes. The victim raised his hands in frustration at which time the Audi “brake checked” him twice causing him to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision," said the WSP statement.
At this point the victim slowed his car and pulled over to the shoulder as did the Audi. The victim said that was when "four males of what appeared to be East Indian decent got out of the Audi and proceeded to punch, kick and hit him with a 4×4 piece of wood that one of them picked up off of the shoulder."
Witnesses stopped and looked while the beating was taking place and that evidently was what caused the four men to jump back into the Audi and flee from the scene at a high rate of speed.
WSP detectives are seeking information from anyone that may have witnessed these two vehicles prior to, during, or after the assault. Please contact Detective Vik Mauro at (425) 401-7746 or by email at Victoria.firstname.lastname@example.org.
