GRAFTON, Wis. (WFRV) – After allegedly pointing a gun at a Spectrum employee, a man in Wisconsin barricaded himself inside his residence when police arrived.
According to the Grafton Police Department, on March 25 around 7:30 p.m., police got a call from a Spectrum employee who claimed he was threatened by a tenant. The employee alleged that while he was working in the apartment, the tenant became upset with him for unknown reasons.
Authorities say the employee claimed the man grabbed a handgun and pointed it at him. The gun was allegedly pressed into his chest and was told to leave. As the employee left, the man allegedly continued to press the gun into the worker’s back and shoved him out the door.
