Police are looking for witnesses who may have seen a motorcyclist with an pistol approach a car stopped at the intersection of Durham Road and Second Street Pike in Wrightstown Township.
A Newtown Township man traveling south on Durham Road Sunday evening at around 6:45 was stopped at a traffic signal when one of two motorcycle riders that were behind him allegedly walked up to the driver’s-side of his car with a pistol in hand, police said.
The man with the gun only turned away and returned to his motorcycle after his riding partner began yelling at him, police said. The man driving the car told officers he was in shock after the incident.
Police report the suspected gun-wielding man as being approximately 40-years-old, heavyset with a scruffy beard, wearing a black leather vest and driving a black Harley-Davidson bike. The victim told officers he noticed nothing unique that would make the bike more identifiable.
After the incident, the Newtown resident turned into the Newtown Grant development. The bikers continued south on Durham Road, police said.
The victim went the police station to report the incident shortly after it occurred. He said he did not think to call 911 while the incident was happening.
