Authorities Say Wareham Stabbing Death Prompted by Road Rage

WAREHAM – The Plymouth Country District Attorney’s office has said that the stabbing death of a Wareham man was prompted by road rage.

Authorities said 65-year-old David Robbins of Wareham stabbed 33-year-old Yves Roux Jr. in the arm during a road rage dispute in Wareham at about 4:45 a.m. Nov. 6. Both men were driving to work.

Roux got into his car and drove about half a mile before he lost consciousness and crashed. He was taken to a hospital and died two days later.

Prosecutors said most of the confrontation was caught on Roux’s dashboard camera. Police also said there were witnesses to the incident. The two men did not reportedly know each other.

Robbins pleaded not guilty Tuesday to murder and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. He was held without bail and will be back in court on December 12.

Robbins’ attorney says Roux was tailgating and provoked the incident. Robbins allegedly drove to work after the incident.
