INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- With her own children and other children playing around her, a woman says a teenager pulled a gun on her at an Independence, Mo. park Wednesday afternoon.
The woman does not want to be identified so we will call her "Angie" to protect her identity.
"I was so mad when he pulled it out, I pointed at him and said, 'You're screwed, Dude,'" she recalls.
Angie says a boy, who was with other teenage boys, approached her and pretended to be interested in the kittens.
She sat her purse down on the ground to look for a pen to write down phone numbers.
That's when she says the boy tried to grab her purse.
"That same time I turned like this and said, Uh, Uh," Angie said.
When Angie refused to give up her purse, she says the teen pulled a gun out of his pocket and aimed it at her face.
"The barrel was seven inches from my head," she said. "If he would've shot, he would've killed me."
Her daughters were just a few feet away playing, and she says the park was full of dozens of other children and their parents.
"Praise God that my children did not see him put a gun to my face," she said.
Angie filed a police report and says the suspect took off in a two-door, red car with other teenagers inside.
