N.J. Burkett has the details on the apparent road rage assault in Brooklyn.

A disturbing apparent road rage incident in Brooklyn left a man with a fractured skull after he was beaten with a baseball bat, all because he was double parked.

Police say it all started with a confrontation in East Flatbush, and now, they want to find the person responsible.

The incident happened around 5 p.m. Friday, September 8 on East 48th Street. Authorities say the 22-year-old Daron James, who was making a furniture delivery, was involved in a dispute with an unidentified man over double parking. Authorities say the altercation then turned physical, with the suspect striking the victims several times in the head with a baseball bat.

The co-worker said James did nothing to provoke the attack. He suffered severe head trauma and is hospitalized at Brookdale Hospital in critical but stable condition.

His mother is devastated, saying no one should be able to get away with something like this.

"Why somebody have to do my child like that?" Dianna Ramsay said tearfully. "It's unfair. It's unfair. It's unfair...Whoever it is, please, give up yourself. Please give up yourself, because I'm going to pray night and day for you. Night and day. Please, turn in yourself to the cops."

The suspect fled northbound on East 48th Street in a gray Honda Accord. He is described as a black male in his 40s, approximately 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
