Arrest after fake gun intimidation in Nelson

A man has been arrested near Nelson after threatening the female driver of a car that parked behind him with an imitation pellet rifle.

The man, along with two others, was seen abusing the woman in a Richmond Mall car park today when he pulled the gas-powered rifle out of the boot of his car.

He then returned the gun to his car boot and went inside the shopping centre with the two other men, police say.

The man was arrested shortly after.
