Steamboat briefs: 2 Oak Creek men arrested on suspicion of menacing after possible road rage

— A possible road rage incident led to the arrest of two Oak Creek men Thursday afternoon.

Lance Dunaway, Oak Creek Police Department chief administrative officer, said two males reported that they had been the victims of threats by two other men in a vehicle. Dunaway said the men reported being threatened with weapons, but he would not say what kind of weapon.

Based on the descriptions of the suspects, Dunaway said, he was able to track them down in less than an hour in the 100 block of Moffat Avenue.

Routt County Sheriff’s Office deputies assisted in the arrest of a 21-year-old Oak Creek man on suspicion of felony menacing and driving under suspension and a 22-year-old Oak Creek man on suspicion of menacing. The incident is under investigation, Dunaway said.
