    Woman pulls gun on man who exposed himself at lake

    A Longview woman who was walking at Lake Sacajawea with her 6-year-old son pulled a gun on a man who exposed his genitals to her Wednesday evening, according to police.

    The 35-year-old woman was near Martin Dock around 8:10 p.m. when the man approached her “aggressively,” sat down and began performing a sex act, then suggested she should watch him, according to the woman and accounts from police.

    “I put the magazine in my gun. I cocked it,” the woman said in an interview Thursday night. “I said, ‘You need to leave or Ill shoot you. I’m going to blow your brains out.’ ”

    “Oh, [expletive]!” the man declared, before running away.

    The woman, whose name is being withheld by the paper because she is the victim of a sex crime, said she has never before brought her gun, a Ruger .380, with her to the lake, but she grabbed it on her way out the door Wednesday because it was foggy and dark.

    “I just had a feeling,” she said.

    It was one of at least two similar incidents that occurred within six hours in Longview. A man exposed himself to a woman in the parking lot of Winco Foods, at the Triangle Center in Longview, at 2:09 a.m. Thursday, then left in a blue Honda, driving toward Ocean Beach Highway on 15th Avenue, according to another police report.

    Longview police detective Kyle Sahim said police can’t say for sure yet whether the incidents are related.

    The woman who encountered the man at Lake Sacajawea said she saw the man fumbling with his belt as he approached her and her son at Martin Dock. “Miss, miss,” he said, according to the woman. “Could you watch this? You need to watch this.”

    As the man fled, she said she sent her dog, a well-trained Norwegian Buhund Hound, after him. In time, the dog had the man cornered at the gate to Lions Island near Kessler Boulevard. She called her dog back, and the man disappeared into the darkness.

    Asked how her son reacted to all of this, she said: “I had him turn and face toward me. I stayed calm. I didn’t raise my voice. I don’t think he knew what was going on.”

    Police still hadn’t found the man Thursday evening but are investigating several suspects, Sahim said. The woman called police later in the evening, saying she was looking at an online database of local sex offenders and believed she recognized the man she encountered at the lake.

    The man involved in the Lake Sacajawea incident was described as a white male in his early 20s with short dark-blond hair and wearing a gray hoody and dark blue jeans.

    The man who exposed himself in the WinCo parking lot was described as a white male with blond hair and wearing a gray hoody.

    "I put the magazine in my gun. I cocked it,"

    Good thing the pervert ran away, this lady had better find somebody to show her how her gun functions.

    Maybe an Marine could chime in here. What is the saying (slightly modified):
    " This is my rifle (pistol). This is my gun. One is shooting. One is for fun."

    I guess he pulled his "gun" and she pulled her pistol. I wonder if between the pistol and the dog, the guy let loose with something else on his rear below his belt?

    The guy got what he deserved. Maybe she frightened him bad enough to not pull that again.

    But what bothers me about the story is, If the woman was carrying the gun for self defense, why wasn't the magazine in the gun? What if the pervert was violent and just grabbed her, she would not have time to locate and insert the magazine and then jack the slide before he could have done serious harm! If you carry a weapon for self defense, please make sure it is loaded!

    pyrdek - I was one of those marines that called my weapon my gun. The Drill Instructor made me take out my family jewell and run around the barracks with it in my right hand and my weapon in my left. I had to repeat " this ones my rifle and this ones my gun, this ones for shooting and this ones for fun" over and over for 30 minutes. Boot Camp at Paris Island was no piece of cake but it sure did make a better man out of me
