NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police alleged that a bus driver stabbed another motorist in a road rage incident in the Rockaways Tuesday afternoon.

The incident happened around 1:30 p.m. at Beach 67th Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard in the Arverne section of Queens, police told CBS2.

The driver of an empty Metropolitan Transportation Authority Q52 bus allegedly got out and stabbed a 28-year-old man driving a Honda, police said.

The victim was stabbed in the arm and was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in an unspecified condition, police said.

Police sources told CBS2 the 30-year-old bus driver and the other man had been in a prior quarrel over a woman. The incident was not motivated by road rage, police sources said.

The bus driver was taken into custody and was being held at the 100th Precinct Tuesday afternoon, police said. He had not been charged as of the late afternoon.

The alleged incident happened just blocks from the scene where a stray bullet struck another MTA bus Monday night.

Around 8:30 p.m., the 21-year-old victim was shot in the ankle near Beach 70th Street and Beach Channel Drive in Queens, police said.

At least one stray bullet struck the glass of a bus that was stopped at Beach 73rd Street, police said.

The man who was shot was taken to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
