BPD seeks witnesses to Chipotle incident
BARSTOW • The Barstow Police Department is looking for anyone with information about a man brandishing a gun at Chipotle on Tuesday afternoon.
According to Lieutenant Mike Hunter, the police department received a call at 5:33 p.m. about a man who pulled out a gun in the parking lot and then fled the scene. Hunter said the incident could have stemmed from an argument.
Hunter said the reporting party said the incident happened sometime near 5:20 p.m. and gave a vague description of the man who fled the scene.
According to Hunter the suspect was described as an adult white male driving a white older model Buick or Pontiac. Hunter said a license plate number was not provided.
Witnesses said they saw the man enter northbound Interstate 15 after fleeing the Chipotle parking lot, located at 2590 Fisher Boulevard, Hunter said.
Hunter said because the description was so vague, the police department is not actively searching for the suspect but is hopeful to speak to more witnesses.
Anyone with information about the incident can call the Barstow Police Department at 760-255-2211. Those wishing to remain anonymous may call the WeTip Hotline at 800-782-7463.
