Watsonville police are searching for a suspect who brandished a gun this evening during an argument in a parking lot over a noisy child. The victim told police that he was at Crysta Laundry Mat at 1922 Freedom Blvd around 5 p.m. when the fight occurred, police said. The victim’s child was seated in his car, which was parked next to the suspect’s parked car. The suspect apparently complained that the child was making too much noise, and an argument ensued that escalated until the suspect pulled out a long gun, similar to a shotgun, police said.
The suspect threatened the victim repeatedly as he drove away north on Freedom. The victim and his child were not harmed. Police issued an alert with the suspect’s description and vehicle information and searched the area, but were unable to locate him. The suspect is described as a Hispanic male around 30 years old, wearing a grey or blue shirt and jeans. His vehicle was a newer beige or tan Chevy Impala.
