ST. CATHARINES, Ont. -- A trip to the store for Easter goodies has left a local grandmother traumatized from a road rage attack that left her with a damaged car and a burn from a cigarette flicked at her face.

Rose Narrie, 62, who suffers from stomach and liver cancer, has been left shaken and her husband outraged from the Thursday attack.

"You live your whole life to retire in peace and quiet, and I have enough on my plate to deal with," Narrie said. "I don't go out of the house a lot, but when I'm having a good day I'll go to some stores that are close by with my daughter. I just want to live in peace and enjoy every day."

Police said the suspect slammed on his brakes in front of Narrie, then followed her vehicle into a restaurant parking lot.

After initially blocking her car, the thug pulled alongside and flicked a lit cigarette at her face and then hit the side of her car with his as he sped away.

"I just can't believe he was smiling and laughing when he flicked the cigarette in my face," Narrie said. "He enjoyed it. Hit hit me in the face with it, and it fell down my blouse.

“As I was pulling at my blouse, he was killing himself laughing."

Police said the suspect was driving a green, older Mazda Mx-6. Narrie said the suspect was about 25 to 30 years of age, slender with a pock-marked face and brown hair.

"He had a girl with him and she was freaking out," husband Bill Narrie said. "I'm hoping she is going to come forward. I am offering a reward on Facebook of $1,000 for information. I want this guy caught."
