A husband is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the man who punched his wife in the face in front of their children during a road rage incident at a popular shopping center in Montgomery County.
Lisa O’Neill was driving with her two sons back on Dec. 4 in Upper Providence Township around 4:35 p.m. She told police she was traveling west on Arcola Road at the Providence Town Center when she accidentally cut off another driver as she was trying to enter the left lane.
O’Neill said the driver followed her into the Wegmans Shopping Center onto Town Center Drive near Market Street. Once there, the man pulled up next to her and got out of his vehicle.

“I pulled down the window,” O’Neill said. “My immediate reaction was to say, ‘I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry.’ And he became enraged and screaming.”
O’Neill said the man punched her in the face as her two kids watched and then fled the area.
“I was shocked,” O’Neill said. “Tears just started pouring out of my eyes. I screamed and cried and then I hear my kids screaming and crying.”
On Sunday, O’Neill’s husband announced he’s offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the suspect’s arrest. Her husband says O’Neill suffered a concussion and has gotten migraines due to the attack.
“She can't work and she hasn't been able to attend our boys’ basketball games,” he wrote.
The suspect is described as an older, heavyset white male with white hair who was wearing glasses and a thin blue jacket. He was also driving a newer dark gray or navy 4-door Chrysler 300, possibly with tinted windows. It was last seen turning left at the Movie Tavern.
