Dutchman in western Greece threatens motorist with gun

A 54-year-old Dutch national living in western Greece faces charges of threatening bodily harm and illegal weapons possession after allegedly pointing a gun at a motorist over a perceived transgression of the traffic code, police said Monday.

The 49-year-old motorist said the unnamed Dutchman threatened him on a rural road on the outskirts of Vonitsa and then fled in his own vehicle.

A police search of the suspect’s home revealed a number of unregistered weapons.
