A woman who repeatedly rammed and tried to run over a man in Virginia Friday morning is undergoing a mental evaluation, police said.

“I’ll be fearful for a couple of days,” the victim told News4, too scared to reveal his identity.

His commute started like any other until he noticed a woman driving a red convertible in his rearview mirror.

“She was tailing me, basically,” he said. “And just tailing me and swerving.”

So he pulled into a shopping center in Lorton, about 20 miles south of Washington, D.C., thinking it would be safer. But the woman became more aggressive and crashed into him, he said.

“She hit me like three or four times, then I get out of my car and she chased me in her car,” he said. “She was trying to run me over.”

He said she also shouted inflammatory remarks at him.

“When I got out of my car, she said, ‘You need to go back to your country,’” he said. “And then she said, ‘Hey, he’s from ISIS.’”

Police found the woman – described as a white woman from Woodbridge in her 20s -- just past the county line in Prince William County and took her into custody, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

She has not been charged, police said, but was given a mental evaluation.
