Man Pulls Out Knife in West End Gas Station Dispute
A man flashed a knife at another man in a fight over parking at a West End gas station last week, police said.
The incident occurred at the Exxon at 2150 M St. NW about 4 p.m. Friday.
The victim was arguing with a woman in a car over parking at the gas station for an amount of time he considered excessive, according to authorities.
When the argument subsided, the woman got out of her vehicle to talk to a man in another car. That man then left his vehicle and shoved the victim.
Next, the victim lunged at the man, who then pulled out a knife. A witness intervened to break up the fight soon after.
The man with the knife and the woman then fled.
Police haven’t released any suspect descriptions.
