CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Cape Coral Police investigated an incident Thursday night, in which a man claimed he was threatened with a gun while walking his dog.
Just after midnight on December 6, the victim said he was walking his dog on the 2000 block of NW 3rd St. He said he did not have a flashlight, but was using his phone to illuminate the way. The victim said his dog was not on a leash and that the dog started smelling other dogs at a neighbor's house. He began calling his dog back to him, when a woman on the lanai of that residence allegedly yelled that she was going to get her gun and swore at him to get off of her property.
The victim said he explained to the woman that he was just trying to get his dog and was only three feet onto her property from the street. He said the entire incident happened in 15 seconds, before he called 911. The victim said he heard clicking, as if a firearm was being loaded.
Cape Coral Police met with the neighbor, who said she went outside to get her dogs and noticed a vehicle parked out in front of her residence. Then, she said she saw a man suddenly in her yard. She told police she asked him several times to leave and admitted to swearing at him. The woman said she went inside and retrieved her firearm. After several minutes, she said she went back outside and the man was still there. She said she again told him to get off her property and with that, he left.
Police were unable to establish probable cause for an arrest and closed the case.
