A man allegedly pointed a gun at a woman in the parking lot of a Menlo Park Safeway Sunday morning after she asked him to fix his parking, according to police.
The woman asked the man to adjust his car because he was taking up two spots at the Safeway located at 525 El Camino Real, police said.
The man refused to comply. Instead, he reportedly pointed a handgun at her and told her to leave, according to police.
Police said the woman walked away and immediately reported the incident.
