Sikh Man Brutally Stabbed After Fender Bender

Manteca resident Gulwinder Singh was driving to work at 7 am near Highway 99 in Stockton, California when his car was hit. He stopped his car and got out to exchange information with the other driver. That’s when the situation went from bad to worse.

The assailant asked Singh to leave when he got out of his car following the collision. However, Singh insisted on exchanging driving licence information. It was then that the assailant pulled out a small back revolver. He pointed it at the victim and pulled the trigger, but the gun did not go off.
“I asked him for his license and he pulled a gun on me. And I said, ‘O.K., O.K., it’s cool, I’m leaving,’” Singh told reporters at FOX40.
Walking back to his car, the other driver attacked Singh – first hitting him in the back of the head with a rock and then pulling a knife and stabbing him repeatedly in the face.
Bloodied and confused, Singh got up off the asphalt and that’s when other drivers stepped in and his attacker took off. The suspect tried to flee in his car but crashed into a tree. The assailant then fled on foot.
Singh was taken to San Joaquin General Hospital and received 40 stitches in his ear, above his eye and on the bridge of his nose. Singh says he has no idea why the other driver snapped. “Maybe he already did something and wanted to escape,” Singh said.
Singh has been a San Joaquin county business owner for 13 years and says he never expected to be attacked like this. “I drove taxi for nine years in San Francisco and this never happened to me,” he said.
Stockton Police Lieutenant James Chraska described the suspect as a 5 foot 6 or 8 inch, 21 or 22-year-old black or Hispanic male with medium length hair and a beard.
