Man charged after road rage leads to fight, stabbing in Mint Hill

MINT HILL, N.C. (WBTV) - Police have charged a man in connection with a road rage incident that led to a stabbing in Mint Hill Wednesday afternoon.

Officers charged Brian Dennis Robinson with felonious assault with a deadly weapon to kill or inflicting serious injury.

Mint Hill Police said two people suffered injuries in the incident that happened on Thompson Road around 5 p.m.

Police say an initial investigation revealed that two drivers were involved in a road rage incident, that lead to a physical altercation leaving both drivers with injuries after a weapon was used.

Injuries are believed to be non-life threatening at this time. Both drivers were taken by Medic to two different medical facilities due to the injuries sustained.

Neighbor Judy Davis told WBTV she saw part of the altercation Wednesday night.

"(I was) fixing to eat some supper and I saw two guys going at it. One guy was laying down and the other guy was beating him with his fist, which turns out it wasn’t his fist, it was a knife,” said Davis.

She said she was afraid to go outside, but called police to report what was happening.

“The guy on the roadway, which was Thompson Road, was yelling ‘help, help, help’ so I grabbed my phone and called 9-1-1 and told the operator that we need the police out here," explained Davis.

Neighbors who live nearby are familiar with Robinson. Two years ago police were looking for Robinson after receiving reports that the man was pointing guns at cars, filming drivers, and blocking roads to confront people.

Davis is relieved to hear the man is in custody.

“He takes pictures of people and threatens people and hopefully he’ll be put away now and we’ll feel safer,” said Davis.

Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Mint Hill Police Department at 704-545-1085.
