Authorities said Monday that they had arrested a man suspected of being the Tesla driver involved in a series of road rage attacks in Southern California.
At least ten people have come forward to say they had terrifying encounters with the man, and in some cases, they captured him on video smashing the sides of cars with a metal pipe.
According to LAPD, a suspect linked to the attacks was apprehended by CHP and booked into LAPD's 77th jail on Sunday night.
Nathaniel Walter Radimak, 36, has been identified as the suspect. He was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and for two outstanding warrants. Bail was set at $5.175 million at first.
SoCalTelevision obtained video of the suspect smashing a car with a pipe on the 2 Freeway in Glendale.
According to the CHP, the arrest on Sunday was only for the Jan. 11 assault on the 2 Freeway. The investigation is still ongoing.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call the CHP's Los Angeles office at (213)744-2331 or the CHP Traffic Management Center at (323)259-3410 after hours.
People outside of California began to investigate after the victim came forward.
TizzyEnt, a popular internet sleuth, began sharing videos with his 5.3 million TikTok followers. According to the influencer, three people came forward with the suspect's name, which he gave to police.
In October 2021, one of the suspect's attacks included punching a woman in the face and leaving her with a black eye.
"Lately, social media has been a better platform and tool to finding the suspect than law enforcement has ever been, at least from what I've see and what I've heard," a victim told SoCalTelevision.
"It's been concerning knowing that this case has been going on for a while, and the suspect has been walking out like the free man he is," the victim added.
Another victim, who had her tires slashed in West Hollywood in March, expressed gratitude for the attention the attacker is now receiving.
"For the past year, in part of my mind I thought: was there someone out to get me?" the victim said. "All these different accounts have been good to know that it wasn't me specifically."
