Armed woman threatens motorist

A woman threatened a Brooklyn Park man with a handgun Sunday night at a convenience store on Ritchie Highway after a traffic dispute, police reported.

Dennis Bruchalski, 43, told authorities that he and the other driver, who was in a red BMW, pulled onto the 7-Eleven parking lot on Church Street about 7 p.m. to settle their differences. The report did not specify the nature of the dispute.

The woman got out of her car and threatened Mr. Bruchalski with a black semiautomatic handgun, police said.

After about a minute, the woman got back in the car, which was last seen heading north on Ritchie Highway. The car had Washington license plates.
