Man Arrested for Rampages Against Women

Posted June 27, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Durham County deputies say they've arrested a man who's been terrorizing women drivers. He admittedly rammed their cars with his car.

Twenty-two-year-old Robert Sanford is charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. He told police he often slammed into women drivers from behind and sped away.

Deputies say Sanford struck six times in Northern Durham county over the last two months. Durham County Sheriff Worth Hill says the fact that Sanford struck several times helped with the investigation made it easier to zero in on him.

Sanford's car has been impounded and will be used as evidence. Investigators say Sanford confessed, and explained that he has a "problem with women."
