The search continued on Friday for a woman who stabbed a man in a riverside sporting complex in Newton, Massachusetts, Thursday night, police said.

State police released new details on the road rage incident Friday morning — they said the man, a 32-year-old from Quincy, was there to play soccer at one of the fields near the Daly Rink on Nonantum Road. He was outside of his car about 9:15 p.m. in the ice rink's parking lot when the woman got out of her own and stabbed him in a confrontation.

A woman got out of a car and stabbed a man at the Daly Rink in Newton during a road rage incident, according to Massachusetts State Police

The woman drove off, police said, while the man was taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital. He's expected to survive.

Police didn't share any information about the man's attacker.

This is far from the first road rage case police have had to respond to recently.

In March, a shuttle bus driver for Faulkner Hospital was stabbed during a road rage incident.

Last month, a woman in Framingham was punched repeatedly by another driver in an attack caught on camera. The victim in that case said the attacker used hateful language, telling her to "go back to your country."

Massachusetts doesn't track road rage incidents, but AAA says aggressive driving behaviors have increased since the pandemic.

"It's those bad driving behaviors that aggravate other folks, and that's when tempers start to escalate," said Mark Schieldrop of AAA Northeast.

Schieldrop recommends taking the high road to avoid becoming the next victim of such an incident.

"Let people merge. If somebody cuts you off, forgive them," he said. "It's not our job to punish other people on the roadway for bad driving behavior, that's the job of law enforcement."
