Peterborough police are investigating after a Bowmanville man and his pregnant girlfriend were threatened by another man, who showed them a gun during a dispute in the parking lot of Loblaw’s Real Canadian Superstore at Lansdowne and High streets in Peterborough.

The incident happened at around 1 p.m. on Saturday (August 13), after Hunter Jones and his girlfriend — who is nine months pregnant — pulled into a parking spot designated for expecting mothers or parents with young children.

“This man started yelling out of his van’s window at me, ‘I don’t see no kids, come closer to my van’,” Jones wrote on social media. “He approached me saying ‘You don’t know where I’m from, I’ll fuck you up’.”

After Jones’ girlfriend also got out of the car, the man continued to threaten the couple, displaying his “prison tattoo” according to Jones.

“He than continued to open the glove box to show me his concealed weapon,” writes Jones, who reported the incident to Peterborough police.

Jones’ girlfriend captured part of the incident on video, when the man can be heard telling Jones “I know what your licence plate is … I’ll find out where the fuck you live,” as he walks to his minivan, which had plate number BVMY794 according to Jones.
