Two people were seen following each other "in an erratic manner" through Coquitlam last week.

While it appears no one was injured in the apparent road rage, a file was reported to RCMP as the incident took place for a stretch of nearly two kilometres during the afternoon rush hour ahead of the August long weekend.

Now, police are hoping more witnesses can come forward to help officers proceed with the investigation.

The two drivers were seen following one another around 4 p.m. on Friday (July 29) heading from Maillardville to Austin Heights.

Mounties explain the incident is believed to have started near the intersection of Brunette Avenue and Marmont Street.

The drivers were then seen heading north before turning left on King Albert Avenue, and turned right onto Porter Street — the last reported sighting of the erratic driving behaviour.
