Comments Off on VIDEO: Deputies need help finding road rage suspect

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man who was involved in a road rage encounter and allegedly threatened a motorcyclist with a baseball bat.

  • Authorities looking for the public’s help
  • Deputies say the suspect was driving an older model Nissan extended cab pickup truck

Part of the incident was recorded by witnesses using Snapchat.

Joseph Sudano, 62, said he was driving his motorcycle near the intersection of Hillsborough Avenue and Town ‘N Country Boulevard around 11:30 a.m. on July 20.

Sudano said he was being tailgated by a man driving a gray pickup truck.

"You know, he was driving too close so that was kind of dangerous and I said something to him and he said something back," Sudano said.

He told deputies the driver went past him, slammed on his brakes and got out of his truck.

Sudano said the man grabbed a baseball bat from his truck and threatened him. As he was calling 911, Sudano said the suspect said "I’ll just take this instead" and grabbed the gold necklace off his neck.

"That’s pretty gutsy to do that in broad daylight," he said.

Sudano said he doesn’t regret speaking up with the man got too close.

"No, this is me," he said. "I’m sorry, I’m going to say something. If it’s wrong, it’s wrong because you know,  if I don’t say something he might hit somebody next time."

Investigators are hoping someone recognizes the man. They said the suspect was driving a 2000-2005, light gray, Nissan extended cab pickup truck with flared wheel wells.

Crimestoppers Tampa Bay is offering a $ 3,000 reward in this case.
