A man, sitting in his car and eating dinner while on a break from work at Broadway at the Beach, told police two men tried to force him from his parking space at the busy tourist attraction with one of the men pulling a gun on him when he refused.
Myrtle Beach police were called to Broadway at the Beach around 9 p.m. Saturday for a weapon law violation, according to a police report.
The man told police he was taking a break in his car when “two Hispanic males drove up to his vehicle in a black Dodge Charger.
“He stated that the males approached his vehicle and told him to move out of the parking space,” police noted in the report. “He stated that he told the suspects that he would not move the vehicle and they became aggressive.”
The suspects began to beat the front of his car, he told police, and one of them came to his window, demanding again that he move. When he told him no, the man said the suspect lifted his shirt and pointed a gun at him, according to the report.
“The victim could not describe the firearm because he only saw the barrel,” police noted in the report. “The suspects then entered their vehicle and drove away in an unknown direction.”
The suspects were not located at the scene, but were described as Latino males in their 20’s, one wearing a blue shirt and the other a black shirt.
