Police are obtaining arrest warrants for a man who pointed a gun at the men repossessing his vehicle, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety.

The victims told officers they arrived at the suspect’s Dillon Avenue home just before 2 a.m. on Monday to repossess the suspect’s 2000 Ford Explorer, according to the report.

The suspect came out of the home with a black semi-automatic pistol, pointed it at the two victims and told them to leave his vehicle alone.

One of the victims told the suspect what company they were with and that they were there to repossess the vehicle, the report stated. He still insisted they leave, according to the report.

When one of the victims called law enforcement, the suspect fled back into the home, according to the report. Police later made contact with the suspect, who was uncooperative and wouldn’t speak with them.

Officers “decided not to proceed any further at that time” and will obtain a warrant for pointing and presenting a firearm, the report stated.
