A 43-year-old man accused of stabbing another man after a road rage incident in Temecula was arrested and remained jailed Sunday in lieu of $1 million bail.

Deputies responded to the scene of the stabbing at about 12:44 p.m. Saturday in the 28400 block of Old Town Front Street in front of several businesses, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

They found a 35-year-old man near a sidewalk suffering from multiple stab wounds, sheriff’s official said. Authorities said the stabbing occurred minutes after a road rage incident, though the suspect had fled the scene before first responders arrived.

The victim — whose identity was not released — was hospitalized and remains in stable condition.

The suspect, 43-year-old Rigoberto Reyes-Reyes of Temecula, was found driving less than a mile away from the scene of the stabbing in the 42200 block of Main Street, where he was arrested.

He was booked into the Southwest Detention Center on suspicion of attempted murder.
