Male Pulls A Gun On A Female In Rockford



Around 11:54 pm tonight several officers were dispatched to the gas station on Linden rd and Alpine.

Scanner traffic is saying a male pulled a gun on a female at this intersection. The female is hysterical, so the call taker is not able to get much information.

The suspect was last seen southbound on Alpine. The vehicle is a gray truck with the word “RAM” on the front. White male wearing a hoody, armed with a gun.


UPDATE: After police investigated, they believe the female had called 911 and made a false claim. They said that she was trying to get her boyfriend in trouble again.  Officers are thinking about arresting her for misuse of the 911 and maybe more, via scanner traffic.
