A dashcam video posted on YouTube that captures an apparent road rage incident and alleged assault is making its rounds on social media.

The ‘instant karma’ incident occurred on February 12 on Terminal Avenue, near Science World and Pacific Central Station.

In the video, a man is seen getting out of his white car and walking towards the driver of the car in front of him. The man touches the driver-side window and appears to assault the driver.

Other drivers act as witnesses and the man is unable to leave the scene as vehicles are blocking his vehicle. One of the witnesses walks over to the other side of the street to alert police: Vancouver Police were in the area responding to an unrelated incident.

Two police officers then walked over and arrested the suspect for the assault. Towards the end of the video, the individual who recorded the footage dubs the incident “instant karma in less than 3 minutes” – the duration of the entire incident from apparent road rage to arrest.

According to CTV, the suspect driver is 26 years old and is now facing charges of assault. The cause of the apparent road rage is not known.
