A white married couple in South Carolina face criminal charges in a road-rage attack on an interracial couple at whom they hurled racial slurs, according to reports.

John Kingkade, 38, and his wife, Krystal, 37, were each charged with two counts of robbery and two counts of first-degree assault and battery in the April 10 incident, the State reported.

Elena Vawter and her boyfriend, Bron Cornett, 21, who is black, were cut off at a red light on Two Notch Road by the Kingkades, who were in a Mercedes C-Class.

The driver motioned for the couple to pull over in a Dollar Tree parking lot, where John began shouting racial slurs and kicked their car, police said.

When Cornett got out of his car and tried to take a picture of the Mercedes’ license plate, John allegedly assaulted him, knocking him to the ground, according to an incident report cited by the news outlet..

Vawter, who rushed to his aid, was then assaulted by Krystal, according to a news release from the Richland County Sheriff’s Department.

The Kingkades allegedly stole the victims’ cellphones before fleeing, authorities said. Witnesses shot video of the vile attack and called the cops.

A bystander who followed the attackers saw them stop about a mile away, where the woman got out of the vehicle and fled into woods.

“It was such a loud smack when my boyfriend hit the ground,” Vawter told WIS-TV. “The scream was so horrendous, I thought he had been shot.”

“I’m constantly in pain now,” Cornett, who underwent surgery, told the station.

Vawter said her tooth was broken when John allegedly punched her in the face and that her boyfriend suffered muscle, nerve and ligament damage.

“I’m constantly in pain now,” Cornett, who underwent surgery, told the station. “I don’t know if my leg’s going to be the same ever again.”

The suspects were arrested Wednesday night and booked at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.

The alleged attack started after the Kingkad's cut off Bron Cornett and Elena Vawter at a red light.

John is scheduled to appear in a Richland County court on May 14, while Krystal is due before a judge on May 21, the State reported.

In 2003, he pleaded guilty to a drug charge and had a five-year prison sentence suspended, and was ordered to serve two years of probation, the outlet reported, citing court records.
