The woman inside the vehicle says she's going to call the police and that he'll be arrested.

The incident took place close to Fournier and Ouimet Streets in the Montreal suburb. It was posted to Facebook by Karine Cyr, who said the man was driving a green Ford Windstar.

Police told Le Huffington Post Quebec that it's possible the man could face an assault charge. They're currently working to identify him and talk to witnesses.

Quebec blogger Matthieu Bonin reported on his website that the incident occurred after the two vehicles were involved in a conflict on the road. Cyr's vehicle followed the man's minivan in order to get his license plate, and ended up in a cul-de-sac. It was at that point, Bonin wrote, that the man exited his vehicle.
