Pointed with a gun while driving in CBD


On the said date, i was driving down Simmonds, to turn right into Jeppe to get to Newtown. The robot was red, around 6pm i spotted someone approaching my car window, wearing a jacket and i instinctively felt he was armed or so. I swift reversed and blew a hooter a couple of times to alert passers-by. he then approached me as i had reversed, then a thought of scaring him off, i drove foward at speed, as i passed him on the right hand, he withdrew a firearm and pointed at me. The car was speeding , perhaps fortunately to my advantage. No gunshots but i am terribly shocked and thought i should share this with the community.
