A violent fist fight broke out on a freeway in Houston Thursday between a 20-year-old woman and a man she claims followed her and punched her through her car window when she was waiting at a stoplight.   
Analisse Quintana, who is Latina, alleges that the unidentified white man stalked her car in anger after she accidentally cut him off in traffic at around 5.20pm Thursday in the Cypress area of the city. 
Shocking social media footage shows Quintana emerging from her car and taking a swing at the man before an all-out brawl erupts, while other panicked drivers called the police to report the violent scene.

The video was taken by women sitting in the car in front who can be heard calling 911 to reported the attack and state that their own car had been hit from the back. 
The two drivers are shown tussling and angrily grabbing at each other as the women sitting in front begin to sound more and more panicked.  
It also shows an out-of -breath Quintana walking back to get in her car after the man backed off.   
A second video shows the the man, described as blond and about six foot tall, dragging Quintana to the ground by the neck of her t-shirt.
It was captioned by the other driver stating: 'Bro wtf! And he was the one in the wrong.' 

Police are now looking to identify the man who is reported to have had a young boy, around six or seven years old, in the front seat of his gray Ford pickup model 150/350. 
According to Quintana, the road rage incident began when both cars were traveling along the Beltway 8 frontage near Philippine Street in the Cypress area of Houston.
'I was driving off the feeder road (Beltway 8), and I was switching lanes, and upon me doing so I accidentally cut off a man who I noticed started driving aggressively after me,' Quintana claimed when speaking to the Houston Chronicle

She the alleged the man followed her off the Beltway after the accidental cut-off and got off the same exit, following her Kia Soul for five minutes before they came to a stoplight.
'He stopped beside me at the light and started yelling at me outside the window, and I kept putting my hand up so he can leave me alone,' Quintana continued. 
'I immediately felt scared and tried to put my window up, but it was too late he punched my window, and when I turned toward him he repeated to punch me yelling racial slurs.'  
Quintana said that she then decided to get out of her own car to protect herself and that's when the fist fight began.  
'I knew then I should have stayed in the car, but my immediate reaction was to defend myself,' said Quintana. 
'I have a lot of mixed feelings of hurt and disappointment with our society today. People were looking at this man repeatedly punching me, choking me and dragging, and no one helped.' 
'I did try to defend myself, but I should have made a better decision and stayed in the car,' she added to Fox 26
'You get upset—okay great—but to physically assault, especially a grown man to assault a woman, I just haven't really grasped the concept.'

She was left with some injuries, sustained when the man smashed her car window and punched her. 
'I have some scratches on my arm here,' said Quintana. 'I also had glass in my big toe.' 
The young woman had been on her way to visit her mother Edna Mojica at the time of the attack. 
Mojica has shared the videos to Facebook calling for help in identifying the man who beat her daughter . 
'Our Nani needs justice,' she said in a Facebook video.  'It only takes that one person who recognizes this EVIL HATEUL human.
'While he had his small boy was watching. He followed her to the light. He jumped out his car, she watched him come toward her and tried to put her window up but it was too late he punched her car window and preceded to punch her in the face repeatedly as he called her all sorts of derogatory racist hateful names,' she added. 
'She fought back defending herself after he threw her in the floor. BUT SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE HAD TO DO SO.'
A second, shorter video shows the man more clearly as he drags the young woman by her hair as she continues to fight back and other drivers watch on

The family has also voiced their anger that no other drivers stepped in to help the young woman and that they can be seen passing on once they could continue through the stoplight. 
'Many cars were at the stop light while this was happening and NOBODY HELPED HER WHILE THIS GROWN RACIST MAN BEAT AND DRAGGED Her ALL OVER THE STREET like a drag doll. While they took multiple videos,' Mojica said.
'I think I was more upset because nobody stopped to say "Hey, let me help this woman out",' her father told ABC 13  of the bystanders.
