Upon arrival of officers it was found that a 37 year old female was assaulted by an older male. The male entered the store following a road rage incident on N. Main St. and Church Road at the traffic light. According to the victim the male was operating a white colored sedan, unknown make and pulled out in front of her. The victim stated she honked her horn at the vehicle and both vehicles entered the parking lot of the Landis Supermarket. The victim entered the store and began to shop, when the male suspect entered the store, it appears on store surveillance that he is actively looking for the victim.
