After apparently unprovoked attack on driver, police seek information

Cody police are looking for a man who reportedly pulled over and choked another driver on Sunday night.

The driver told police that around 10 p.m. Sunday, a man in a dark, lifted Ford truck with a large grill guard began following him on Sheridan Avenue. The man in the Ford then started flashing his lights, as if he wanted the driver to pull over, Cody police spokesman John Harris said of the driver’s account in a Tuesday news release.

The driver pulled over at a spot just east of 17th Street on Goodturn Drive and the man approached his car. Then, through his car’s open window, the driver said the man grabbed him by the throat and began choking him, asking, “What is your problem?”

The man — described as about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, 210 pounds and having a “burly beard” — then reportedly let go and drove away.

“The victim did not know who the suspect was or why he was attacked,” Harris said in Tuesday’s release. He asked anyone with information about the incident to contact Cody Police Officer Mark Martinez at 307-527-8700.
