Alleged BG weapons incident remains under investigation


An incident where a man allegedly brandished a weapon in the city last week remains under investigation.

On Thursday around 1 a.m., Bowling Green police received a report that a man had brandished a firearm at a woman’s head.

During a phone call with Perrysburg City Police, the Bowling Green Police Division officer was told a female had shown up at their department to make a report that a male that she was with pointed a firearm at her head. The Perrysburg officer said that the female was at a party in Custar and needed to go to the store to get milk for her kids.

The suspect took her to Bowling Green and stopped at a store in the 1400 block of East Wooster Street around 10:30 p.m.

The male then pulled out the firearm and pointed it at her head, she told Perrysburg police.

She then said they left the store and got on northbound Interstate 75, after which the male dropped her off at a gas station in Perrysburg, according to the report.

The suspect’s vehicle was described as a cream four-door sedan.

An attempt to call the suspect, according to the police report, was unsuccessful as the number given them no longer belonged to the male.

An attempt was then made to contact the alleged victim. A man answered and said the female did not have a cell phone and wouldn’t be home for another 30 minutes. A message was left for the female to call BGPD.

At approximately 3 a.m., another call was made to the woman and the officer was told that she was in bed and didn’t want to speak with police at that time, according to the report.

Dispatch was unable to find any vehicles that were under the suspect’s name.
