LA HABRA HEIGHTS - Deputies quickly arrested man who admitted to brandishing a handgun at another driver Friday night.
The driver, only identified as a Hispanic man, pointed a handgun at the victim at Hacienda Road and West Road around 9:14 p.m. The suspect apparently did not try to rob the victim, nor did the crime occur as the result of a fight.
“It wasn’t a robbery and it wasn’t a fight. It was just a guy who pointed a pistol at a guy in another car,” said Lt. Hugo Reynaga of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Industry Station.
Deputies responded after the victim called 9-1-1 and after being given a vehicle description, deputies located the suspect in his black Porsche Cayenne and conducted a high-risk stop, Reynanga said.
The suspect was arrested at Hacienda Boulevard and Haliburton Road in Hacienda Heights and admitted to having a gun in his vehicle.
The suspect’s name was not readily available.
