Two brothers appeared in court Wednesday after allegedly assaulting two men in the streets.
Windsor Police are calling it a case of road rage that sent an 81-year-old man and a 55-year-old man to hospital with non-life threatening injuries on Tuesday.
The victims' van was passed and cut off by a red Pontiac with a 21-year-old and 30-year-old inside — both Windsor men — according to police.
Police said the altercation happened on Wyandotte Street West and Crawford Avenue when the Pontiac was blocking the crosswalk where a pedestrian in a motorized wheelchair was trying to cross the street.
The driver of the Pontiac shouted at the pedestrian, which caused the 81-year-old man driver of the van honk his horn and ask if the person crossing the street was alright.
A man got out of the Pontiac and approached the two men in the van. The 55-year-old spilled a coffee on his lap during the altercation, police said.
The man exited the van and continued the assault.
The 81-year-old driver tried to stop the fight when the driver of the Pontiac threw him to the ground, police said.
"He then proceeded to join in the assault on the 55 year old victim who was punched and kicked," according to the press release.
A passerby called police as the two men fled the scene, but the 81-year-old was able to get a license plate number.
The two men were arrested in the 600 block of Grove Avenue, wearing blood-stained clothing, according to police.
Each suspect is charged with two counts of assault.
