According to the department, a female jogger had reported that a van had passed by her multiple times and was circling her jogging route, staring at her. Additionally, officers spoke with another motorist who was traveling with his children in his car. He reported that the same van had blocked his passage, so he honked at the van.

The driver got out of the van and approached the motorist and challenged him to a fight before fleeing the area.
