Brockton Man Held on New Assault Charge in Road Rage Case
BROCKTON — A 19-year-old Brockton man allegedly involved in a road rage assault in which two city men were beaten and wounded in September is being held on a new charge of assault with intent to murder.
Korey Gallagher-Lee was arrested Monday after turning himself in, and is being held pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Wednesday, the Plymouth County District Attorney's Office said.
He was first charged with multiple counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery resulting in serious injury on a person over 60, among other similar charges.
Brockton police responded on Sept. 24 to several 911 calls near Walnut and Appleton streets reporting a minor traffic accident that had turned violent, the D.A.'s office said.
Officers arrived to find two men who had been assaulted and sustained visible wounds. The victims were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital to be treated.
Several bystanders were interviewed as witnesses, and police also reviewed video footage allegedly showing a group of people including Gallagher-Lee approach and assault the victims, the office noted.
The incident remains under investigation.
Anyone with information about the alleged assault is asked to contact Brockton Police at 508-941-0234.
