Woodland police officers were dispatched to the 7-Eleven convenience store at 301 Cottonwood St. about 10:30 p.m. Saturday to investigate a report of a handgun being brandished.
The victim and his girlfriend told police that two Hispanic men began threatening them as they walked to their vehicle in the convenience store’s parking lot. At some point, one of the men, later determined to be a 17-year-old Woodland youth, pulled a semi-automatic handgun from his waistband. The juvenile allegedly pointed the handgun at both victims as he and the second suspect yelled gang-related slang and challenges.
Officers saw two males running southbound across Main Street from the Corkwood Lounge, and the victims positively identified them as the suspects at the 7-Eleven.
Arrested were Angel Fermin Hernandez, 28, of Woodland, and the 17-year-old youth. Both were charged with brandishing a firearm in a threatening manner, terrorist threats and participating in criminal street gang activity.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the Woodland Police Department at 530-666-2411.
