A 36-year-old Chester County man faces robbery, assault and theft charges stemming from a road rage incident where police say the victim was punched.

West Whiteland Township police say Brian Burke was arrested Wednesday in connection to the April 15th incident.

According to investigators, a woman said she was punched and then had her glasses stolen by a man in a pickup truck after a traffic accident. Police say they received a tip from someone who had seen a news report about the incident that helped lead officers to Burke's vehicle.

Burke was arraigned on the charges. He is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing later this month.
