During his commute on Tuesday morning, in Manteca, California, Gulwinder Singh was involved in a minor accident with another car, and then brutally attacked by the other driver:

“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 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.

The other driver did not only pull a gun, but he also reportedly pulled the trigger. Fortunately, the gun did not discharge. The attacker fled when passers-by became involved, crashing his car in the process and escaping on foot. Police are considering this a case of attempted murder and are looking for the suspect:

The suspect was described as a dark Hispanic or black male between the ages of 21 and 22.

He’s roughly 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighs between 185 and 190 pounds.

The suspect has medium length dark hair and was last seen wearing a gray t-shirt and blue jeans.

There has been no indication that this was a hate crime. Gulvinder Singh reportedly received 50 stitches to wounds across his face and head as a result of the attack.
