A Connecticut man was simply trying to be a gentleman when he held the door for two women but he didn’t appreciate it when they didn’t thank him so the 25-year-old pulled a gun on them.
Police arrested Joshua Murray this week after he pointed his gun at two unsuspecting women who didn’t say “thank you” for him opening a door.
According to the Hamden Police Department, officers responded to the local Family Dollar where there were reports of “an individual pointing a firearm at customers in front of the store.” A witness said the suspect, Joshua Murray, was angry that two women did not say “thank you” to him for holding a door open for them.
Officers located Murray nearby with a firearm and took him into custody. He also “interfered with his arrest,” according to a statement from the Hamden Police Department.
Murray was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, a felony, and misdemeanor charges of interfering with an officer and two counts of second-degree breach of peace. No one was injured during the incident or arrest.
He is scheduled to appear in Meriden Superior Court on August 2nd, 2022, and was held on a $25,000.00 bond.
