AUSTIN, TX – A man was arrested last week after stabbing a woman after what witnesses say was a road rage incident.
According to reports, Victoria Higdon was driving with two passengers on Valley Hill Circle. A car driven by Carlos Reyna, 41, turned in front of her attempting to get into a driveway. Higdon and Reyna exchanged words over the incident and maybe even threw each other a few hand gestures. After the altercation, Higdon and her passengers continued on to their original destination. In her affidavit, she advised that Reyna followed her and continued to argue.
Higdon was leaving the neighborhood and found Reyna in the middle of the street. Higdon rolled down her window and spoke to Reyna. The man walked up to Higdon’s car, pulled out a knife, and stabbed the victim in the arm, face and shoulder. Reyna was subsequently arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
