HACKENSACK, -- A 28-year-old Ohio man is facing charges of aggravated assault and terroristic threats after he brandished a handgun at a store clerk outside a 7-Eleven.
Police say Tyreek Davis, of Columbus, Ohio, was in town visiting his mother this past weekend when he stopped in the 7-Eleven on Essex Street after 9 a.m. for a pack of cigarettes. When the clerk asked him for identification, David became “agitated” and began a losing argument with the clerk. He then stepped outside the convenience store, grabbed a handgun from his 10-year-old Chevrolet Impala and returned to the store, brandishing the weapon and hitting it against the store window hollering for the clerk to come out. The clerk told police he threatened to kill him if he didn’t. The clerk refused to exit the store and Davis eventually drove off.
Davis’ vehicle was impounded after Sgt. Franklin Bay of the Hackensack Police Department found the car parked several blocks from the store on Myer Street. Detectives identified Davis as the suspect and used a court-authorized search warrant to look inside his vehicle. The search yielded a loaded Hi Point Firearms CF380 semi-automatic handgun, which he owned legally in Ohio.
Davis was arrested and charged with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and terroristic threats. Davis was remanded to Bergen County Jail pending a first appearance at Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack.
