Modesto shoppers followed by armed driver | Crime
MODESTO, CA - Police in Modesto are hoping to find the driver of a Corvette who followed, attempted to block and even waved a gun at two female shoppers.
The two incidents happened at the Plaza Parkway shopping center, just off Highway 99. Police said the first potential victim was approached by the man who attempted to open her car door. The second woman was told to get into the man's car, and he was seen waving a gun.
"There's people in that lot (shoppers). This is very brazen," Modesto Police Department Sgt. Evan Valencia said. "The incident where he shows the firearm really raises our concern."
Valencia described the suspect as a Hispanic man in his 20s or 30s, muscular and with a crew cut. The silver Corvette is thought to be a late 90s model.
Video shot by cameras on top of the Walmart store caught images of the car, but the pictures were too grainy to get a license plate.
