90 Owen Parkway (Hoyt Park)


A couple had finished an early morning walk in Hoyt Park, 90 Owen Parkway.  It was a little after midnight. They noticed another car had pulled in close to the overlook where they had parked. A man was lying on the hood of the other car. As they were about to leave, he came up to their car window, pointed a handgun at them, and said something about drugs. They told him they did not have drugs, and drove away, contacting the MPD soon thereafter. Officers were unable to locate a suspect.
