FULLERTON (CBS) — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect in an apparent road-rage incident that occurred on June 5, in Fullerton.
The victim, identified as 56-year-old Larry Markin of Fullerton, remains in critical condition at UC Irvine Medical Center as a result of the June 5 attack.
Fullerton police Sgt. Andrew Goodrich says Markin and his attacker apparently had some sort of traffic incident that led to a conflict near a Chevron gas station at Orangethorpe Avenue and Euclid Street about 2:10 a.m., according to authorities.
Witnesses told investigators the suspect “carried himself with a military-type demeanor,” so police think he is either a former serviceman or law enforcement officer, Goodrich said.
The suspect is described as a white male with short, light-colored hair. He is about 5’10 and has a muscular build, Goodrich said.
