OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- A metro father hopes someone will step forward and do the right thing after a road incident involving his son -- and is offering a reward for anyone with information.

Eighteen-year-old Johnny Perz was driving his friends home on Saturday evening when he said a Jeep, that may look like a four-door Wrangler, with black rims and a tire on the back, began to make trouble.

Perz said the four men were wearing white hoodies and hockey masks -- honking and yelling profanities at Perz and his friends.

Perz turned off onto a street when the Jeep followed. That's when the people in costume threw an L-shaped iron at Perz's car. Luckily, the window was down and only caused minor damage.

Perz's father said he wants to know who did it, wants to press charges and is offering a big reward for anyone who knows more.

"I'm going to give $5,000 to whoever provides the information where we get an arrest and conviction," Perz's father said. "A 40 mile-an-hour tire iron that happens to hit someone in the head could have easily killed someone -- unbelievable."

Overland Park Police have assigned a detective to the case and are looking at traffic camera footage to find the suspects.
