Joseph Anthony Disilvestri, 46, of the 1900 block of Galetown Drive was punched several times in the face and left semiconscious, but he was not hospitalized, police said.

Disilvestri told police he was nearing the Route 175 exit from the parkway about 6: 30 p.m. when he saw a gray car driving recklessly. The driver kept cutting in front of Disilvestri, almost causing accidents, and making obscene gestures at him, police said.

Disilvestri and the other driver stopped their cars on the shoulder of the road and the driver ran up to Disilvestri's car, opened the door, punched Disilvestri several times in the face, then drove off.
