Road rage incident sees “Hatchet Girl” threaten driver in Ballymena

A Ballymena man has shared footage on social media after he was threatened by a young woman with a hatchet after being followed from Antrim by a Honda Jazz with young people in the vehicle.

Despite having dash-cam footage of the incident that occurred in the Granville Drive area of the town on 24 March, police have yet to apprehend the female involved, described as “Hatchet Girl” by the man, or the driver of the vehicle.

The young woman can be seen wearing a red vest top, (very) ripped black jeans, and a pair of Vans.

The Ballymena man was dropping off a person in the area when the shocking scene unfolded. The video footage also shows the driver of the Honda Jazz attempting to knock the man down by driving toward him.

The victim said on social media, “The Honey Monster decided it would be a good idea to pull an axe on us, then try to drive over me.”

A police spokesperson told Love Ballymena:

“Police received a report of a road rage incident in the Granville Drive area of Ballymena on Thursday 24 March.

“The incident happened at approximately 8.40pm, when a verbal altercation took place between two males and a female.

“The female threatened the male drive of one car with a hatchet before she made off with the second male.

“Anyone with any information or who may have witnessed this incident or who may have any dash-cam footage that could assist with enquiries, is asked to contact police on 101 quoting reference 1906 of 24/03/22.”
