London: Police have arrested a 34-year-old suspect in the fatal stabbing of a great-grandfather following a minor traffic collision in southern England.
Armed officers today arrested the suspect following a manhunt that started yesterday evening after the death of 79-year-old Donald Lock.
Lock was believed to be on his way home when he struck the back of another car in West Sussex, south of London. Police said the suspect stabbed Lock in a “frenzied attack” after Lock got out of his vehicle.
The victim’s family said Lock had been an active bicyclist who recently recovered from cancer.
Automobile Association President Edmund King said such incidents are “thankfully” rare in Britain, where handguns are not common.
He urged motorists to “back down and try to avoid confrontation with other drivers out there.
