Police: Bystander held at gunpoint following argument

- An argument in front of kids led to more than just words being exchanged. Now, police are looking for one of the people who was arguing and another who pointed a gun at the man who complained.

Police say on the afternoon of June 5 in Frankford, a man heard the couple arguing in an alley in the 5200 block of Jackson Street and asked them to move because he had children present.

The men called someone there, telling that person, "Bring that thing. I got a dude that needs to be taken care of."

Soon, another man got out of an older model gray Cadillac pointing a handgun while standing behind a wooden fence.

The victim backed away and the gunman got away in an unknown direction.

Then, the first person threatened the victim. He got away in a white Chrysler minivan.

There were no injuries reported.

The first suspect is described as 25-30 years old, with a light complexion, short hair, and possible tattoo on his face. He was wearing a black Levi's T-shirt, and black and gray Army-style long shorts. He was in a white Chrysler minivan with a Pennsylvania license plate and possible stickers in the rear window.

The other is described as 25-30 years old, with a light complexion, heavy build, and black beard. He was wearing a long white short-sleeve shirt, black pants, and black sandals. He was in a silver or gray Cadillac, with a sticker in the left corner of the back window.
