New Glasgow police are investigating a possible case of bizarre road rage after a motorist sprayed a traffic control worker with an irritant on Tuesday afternoon.

The road worker made the driver stop for construction at Westville Road and Balour Street just before 2:30 p.m.

The driver then called the worker over to his grey Mazda SUV, sprayed him in the face with some kind of irritant and drove off.

The traffic control worker didn’t have any serious injuries.

Police are asking the public to help find the driver.

He’s described as a white man in his 50s.
