Attorney General Maura Healey has launched a review of an alleged Christmas Eve road rage incident involving Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins, according to two people with direct knowledge.

Healey is looking into allegations that Rollins threatened a woman, and inappropriately flashed her blue lights, as they were both trying to exit the South Bay Shopping Center on the afternoon of Dec. 24, the two people said.

In a complaint filed first with the Boston Police Department, the woman, Katie Lawson of Dorchester, described her encounter with Rollins. Lawson declined a request for comment. Lawson is believed to have had no prior relationship with Rollins.
