Police were looking for a stabbing suspect Tuesday after a road rage incident left one man with stab wounds in Oceanside.

The victim, a 29-year-old man from Vista, and the suspect were traveling on the Vista Way on-ramp to State Route 78 west when the incident occurred, according to the California Highway Patrol.

“The two vehicles continued to road rage with one another until they came to a stop at the end of the Jefferson Avenue off-ramp, at which time a stabbing occurred,” CHP Officer Hunter Gerber said.

The victim suffered “moderate” wounds to his left leg and was taken to the Tri City Medical Center. His identity was not released.

The suspect was described as a man in his 30s or 40s. He was seen fleeing the scene wearing a green construction shirt in a black Toyota Tundra.

No further information was released. The CHP was investigating. Anyone with information about the incident was asked to call the agency at 760-643- 3400.
