Jamestown Man Arrested After Allegedly Threatening Employees With Handgun

JAMESTOWN – A Jamestown man is behind bars after allegedly threatening employees of a local gas station with a handgun after they asked him to wear a face mask.

Jamestown Police say 38-year-old Victor Mojica was arrested following the alleged incident at the North Main Street Robo Gas Station on Friday morning.







Officers say two employees at the store told Mojica he needed to wear a face covering while inside the business before Mojica allegedly became angry, kicking one of the employees.

The man, police say, then pulled out what appeared to be a pistol.







Mojica fled the area before officers arrived on scene but was later identified via security video and taken into custody.

Police say after searching his Crossman Street house, officers have yet to find the weapon.













The man is charged with second-degree menacing and second-degree harassment.
