    Fairfield Police are investigating a road rage incident after a man driving a Mercedes confronted a school bus driver and yelled about the time it took to get a special needs child safely into the vehicle, police said.

    Police said this was the second similar incident in two months.

    A woman was in the process of buckling her 5-year-old daughter, who has special needs, into her car seat on a First Student bus on Merwins Lane by Redding Road around 7:30 a.m. on July 10 when a well-dressed man with gray hair got out of his newer black Mercedes and confronted the bus driver, police said.

    The man repeatedly yelled about the delay and got into the bus driver's face, police said.

    Another mother with a special needs child said she experienced a similar incident at Congress Street and Joan Drive around 3 p.m. on a day in June.

    In that incident, the man got out of his car to physically block the woman’s path and later passed several cars to catch up to her as she fled in her own vehicle, police said.

    Police are looking for a man in his late 60s who drives a newer back Mercedes and lives on upper Merwins Lane or a side street.

    Police said all tips will be kept confidential and anyone with information should call the Fairfield police department at (203) 254-4800.
