A group of men in a Jeep terrorized a group of teens in a Scion last week in what the Greenville Police Department described as a road-rage incident. 

The vehicles were traveling on East Fire Tower Road about 3:30 p.m. Thursday when the men in the Jeep Wrangle pulled alongside the Toyota Scion, police department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter said Tuesday. One of the men pointed a handgun at the three teens in the Scion

The teens made their way to the 300 block of Mary Lee Court, which is off of Alma Lee Drive near Evans Street, according to information provided by Hunter from a case report. The men in the Jeep followed them. 

The man, one of four in the Jeep, punched through the front passenger door window of the Scion causing $250 in damages. The driver of the Scion drove away and contacted police. No injuries were reported.

The driver of the Jeep was described as biracial with short hair, a goatee, standing between 5 feet, 9 inches tall and 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 160-180 pounds. The front passenger of the Jeep was described as black with short dreadlocks, gray sweatshirt and dark blue jeans. All four men are believed to be between 18 and 22 years old.

Two men and a woman, all 18, were in the Scion. Officers are continuing to view cameras in the area, Hunter said. The case remains under investigation.
