Ice-cream vendor Christopher Sanders, who has a concealed carry
permit, told police he was selling in his usual territory when a man
flagged him down and asked for a ride. When Sanders told him "no,"
the man allegedly tried to open the vans sliding door, which was
locked, and then tried to reach in an open window on the passenger
side. Sanders grabbed a handgun from behind a seat, pointed it at
the alleged perpetrator and told him to get his hands out of the
vehicle. The man uttered an expletive and left while Sanders phoned
police. As Sanders waited for an officer to arrive, the man returned
and walked toward him with his hands in his pockets. Police say
Sanders yelled at the man to show his hands, and two witnesses saw
the suspect throw a knife on the ground. The alleged criminal was
found by police, arrested on suspicion of robbery and booked for a
previously issued misdemeanor warrant.
