Man Threatened With Handgun in Rochester Hills Bank Parking Lot

The incident happened during daytime Monday, according to a police report.

A Rochester Hills man was threatened by a 29-year-old Auburn Hills man with a handgun in a bank parking lot after a traffic altercation, according to a police report. 

On Monday at 1:43 p.m., Oakland County Sheriff's Office units were dispatched to the 2900 block of Walton Boulevard — the Bank of America parking lot — for a felonious assault with a handgun call.

The victim stated in the report that he was involved in a traffic altercation with the subject, who then threatened him with a black handgun.

According to the report, the suspect left the scene in his vehicle and was seen heading westbound on Walton Blvd.

A sheriff's deputy checked the area and found the suspect driving his vehicle on Brewster Road. A traffic stop was performed and the suspect was taken into custody. A black 9MM pistol was recovered, according to the report.

The man was lodged at the Oakland County Jail pending warrants, the report stated.

Imagine this bad guy pulled his pistol and the victim has a CPL and is carrying...I cannot understand how stupid people can be....

It would be nice to know if this idiot had a concealed carry permit. Very few people who take the class and get it act stupid and lose it later. A pistol is not to brandish and scare somebody. Indeed if you succeed in scaring somebody you may not like the results.

A lot of idiots think having a CPL allows them to brandish a gun in every incident. T

The suspect in this incident was a soldier from Afghanistan recently returned home. The incident actually happened to my husband. The "suspect" was driving crazy and forced my husband to dive into the bank parking lot to avoid being hit by him. The guy jumped out of his vehicle cursing, waving his gun, keyed our hummer and went into the bank. We are wondering if the soldier possibly has post traumatic stress disorder because who acts like that? It was Christmas time as well. As he went into the bank he turned to look back at what my husband was doing and saw he was on the phone. At that point he returned to his car and took off. Rochester is clearly changing with all the robberies lately and crazies. I must say though that the Rochester/Rochester Hills police caught this guy in about 15 minutes and because he was driving a brand new car model, my husband couldn't identify it for the police which made it harder. It had just rolled off the assembly line. The other robberies downtown involved amazing police work as well. They catch them not always knowing the vehicle or having a great description. They surrounded our "suspect" with about 5 police cars on Brewster. Who has even seen 5 police cars in Rochester Hills on the same day? We were quite amazed and grateful.
