Repo man says woman threatened him with gun
A repossession agent told police Thursday that a woman pointed a shotgun at him as he tried to repossess her son's truck.
The 27-year-old said that he drove to the back of a residence on the 1200 block of Kuhn Drive in Harlem to hook the truck to his vehicle.
The owner of the truck came outside to confront him and the two started arguing. Then the truck owner's mother came out the back door and pointed a shotgun at the repo man.
