A road rage incident at a popular Forsyth County shopping center led to a stabbing Friday evening, law enforcement officers say.
Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office deputies were on-scene of a stabbing incident that occurred in the Collection at Forsyth at about 6:30 p.m. Friday evening.
According to the Sheriff’s office, traffic congestion inside the Collections at Forsyth spurred a road rage incident. It started as a verbal altercation; however, it turned physical when the suspect allegedly stabbed the victim multiple times.
The victim was transported to a local hospital. The other party involved in the altercation is currently in custody. Officers say there is no further threat to the public.
On Saturday afternoon, authorities identified 19-year-old Christopher Hamill of Alpharetta, as the suspect.
