ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A New Mexico man is facing charges after police say he pulled a convincing toy gun on a man littering outside an Albuquerque convenience store.
Police say John Joel Robinson was arrested last week following a frantic call about a man with a gun at a Circle K.
According to a criminal complaint, the 35-year-old Robinson pulled his Glock-style handgun on a man he saw throwing trash on the ground.
Officers later discovered the weapon was a “very real looking toy gun.”
Robinson was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon.
No attorney was listed for Robinson.
