The mother said a gold Expedition pulled up in front of her home and a male suspect got out. As the man walked around the SUV, he pulled up his shirt, pulled a black handgun out of his waistband and pointed it at the woman and her child. The suspect said, "You don't want to mess with this." He then got back into his vehicle. The Expedition was last seen going south on 30th Street.
