Hunter L. Stickno is accused of pointing a Taurus-Rossi .357 Magnum at a 21-year-old woman late Tuesday night during a verbal tirade in side-by-side vehicles.

According to township police, officers were summoned to the Route 9 Wawa by a 21-year-old woman who described being tailgated from the area of Oak and North Bay Avenues.

At North Bay and Church Road, Stickno pulled his Honda Ridgeline alongside her car, rolled down his window, and pointed the weapon at her while yelling, police said.

With Stickno in pursuit, the victim ran a red light and evaded him until meeting police at the convenience store, police said.

Officers stopping Stickno’s truck near Route 9 and Church Road found the gun on the floor, within his reach, police said. The vehicle also contained a speed loader with extra ammunition, police said.

Stickno is charged with aggravated assault, possession of a firearm for unlawful purposes and unlawful possession of a weapon.

Authorities believe that Stickno bought the gun legally when he lived in another state, but indicate that charges could change depending on the results of a full investigation.

His bail was set at $50,000.
