A student was threatened at his residence on Aug. 21 by an unknown man who followed the student home and said he would return with a gun.

The victim told police a man driving a green van north on North Cherry Avenue stopped ahead of him, exited and started yelling and waving his arms wildly. When the victim then drove around the man, he followed behind and attempted to ram the student's car.

Later, the man appeared at the student's residence and told the student he recognized the car and would return with a gun.

Police have no suspects.
