Police are looking for a man who brandished a handgun along South Broadway Boulevard Wednesday afternoon.
Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester said this morning that a 32-year-old Salina man was driving south on South Broadway Boulevard when a red Dodge Ram 1500 with a John Deere mower in the back pulled out in front of him, causing him to slam on his brakes to avoid being hit. The incident aggravated the man, who then drove past the pickup and gave the driver the middle finger, Forrester said.
The two vehicles continued south on South Broadway Boulevard with the pickup pulling in behind the other vehicle as they approached the red light at West Crawford Street. While waiting at the light, the 32-year-old man looked in his rearview mirror and saw the driver of the pickup brandishing a black handgun, Forrester said.
The pickup continued to follow the man to his home on Plaza Drive. When the man got out of his vehicle, the red pickup pulled up and the two men exchanged words before the pickup drove away, Forrester said.
The driver of the pickup was described as a white male 60-75 years of age who was wearing glasses and a dirty blue ball cap, Forrester said.
