Colorado Springs police have issued an arrest warrant for Nathaniel Lee Mancha on suspicion of attempted murder in a March 1 road rage incident that left a man in critical condition.
Mancha, 25, was identified as the driver of a gray 2008 Toyota Tundra that allegedly struck 30-year-old Anthony Jafari in the 5600 block of North Academy Boulevard.
In a statement released Tuesday, police said Mancha should be considered dangerous and asked for the public's help to find him and the gray Tundra with Texas license plates BZ71706.
Police said Jafari's Dodge Caravan and Mancha's Tundra were stopped in an alley and Jafari reportedly got out of his van and was struck by a pickup truck that fled. The hit-and-run was investigated as an attempted homicide, police said Sunday.
Jafari's family announced over the weekend they were offering a $10,000 reward for help finding the person who injured him. According to the victim's sister, Jafari was able to call 911 and give police a description of his attacker.
Anyone with information on this incident can contact police at 444-7000 or Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP (7867).
