March 18, 2014

A woman called police after another motorist allegedly pointed a handgun at her in the parking lot at Grandpa Frank's, 4637 S. 108th St., at 1:25 p.m. March 12.

According to the Greenfield police report:

The woman was driving southbound on Interstate 894 when a man driving a red pickup truck began tailgating her at about West Cleveland Avenue.

The woman told police the pickup truck followed her after she exited the freeway at West Beloit Road, and then continued to follow her after she turned left to travel southbound on 108th Street.

As the woman turned into the parking lot at Grandpa Frank's, the driver of the red pickup allegedly pointed a gun at her, and then continued to drive southbound.

The suspect was described as a white male in his late 20s with a small to medium build and a short, dark beard. He was wearing a bright turquoise, zipped-up hoodie with the hood up, a black shirt, dark sunglasses and a watch with a silver band.

The suspect's vehicle was described as a newer, shiny red, full-sized Ford pickup truck with extended black outer mirrors, and the gun as a black matte semi-automatic pistol. The woman also told police the man was the only occupant inside the pickup truck.

The license plate number of the truck vehicle was unknown.
