Two drivers were stuck in traffic Tuesday morning on I-205 when the suspect pointed a gun at the victim after the victim would not give the man a cigarette.
As officers responded to the area, a description of the suspect, the suspect's vehicle and the suspect's last known location were broadcast to officers.
A responding officer arrived and located a vehicle that matched the suspect vehicle description. The vehicle, a maroon Pontiac sedan, was being driven on the ramp from northbound Interstate 205 to westbound Interstate 84.
The officer performed a traffic stop on the vehicle and driver and took the driver of the Pontiac into custody without incident.
As officers continued the investigation, they located a firearm in the Pontiac. Upon inspection of the realistic looking gun, it is was determined the gun was a replica. The replica firearm was seized as evidence.
The suspect was identified as 31-year-old Brandon E. Anderson. Anderson was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of Menacing and a Post Prison Violation Warrant for a previous conviction of Burglary in the First Degree.
