On Wednesday, Norwich police said they wanted to thank an anonymous citizen who helped them during a road rage incident.

Police said they conducted a traffic stop on Taftville Occum Road after the reported road rage incident.

The driver fled from the traffic stop on foot, so police chased him.

During the chase, an unknown citizen offered to give a ride to one of the police officers, who was then able to catch up to the suspect.

Police arrested 27-year-old Duane Crawford, of Norwich.

He was charged with operating a motor vehicle while under suspension, possession of cocaine, interfering with a police officer and second-degree breach of peace.

Police said Crawford was found to be the subject of a "remand to custody order" issued by the state’s Department of Corrections for parole violation.

He was released to the custody of the DOC and is expected to appear in court on June 16.
