That vehicle then forced another vehicle off the roadway and a collision occurred. The suspect threatened the other driver at that time and then also tried to forcibly remove him from the vehicle. When the driver of the uninvolved vehicle was threatened, he exited his vehicle. The suspect then left the scene in the stolen vehicle.  While travelling along the parkway, the suspect cut off and stopped another vehicle.
