Suspect Pulls a Gun on a Father and Daughter in the Pocket Area
A man was arrested in the Pocket area Monday afternoon after he allegedly pulled out a gun and threatened a father and his daughter.
Police showed up near De Mar Drive and Cache River Circle around 12:26 p.m. after getting a report from a man that a suspect had pulled a gun on him.
As police learned, the man was walking with his 7-year-old daughter nearby when the suspect approached. The suspect allegedly told the girl to “come here,” and asked the girl where her parents were.
The girl then ran to her father, who then confronted the suspect. However, the suspect – 28-year-old Jamaal Price – pulled out a gun.
Gathering his wife and daughter, the father then got out of the area.
Officers responding to the scene established a perimeter and soon took Price into custody. A gun was found on him.
Price was arrested and booked into Sacramento County Jail on charges of gun possession, brandishing and outstanding warrants.
