VIDEO: Woman avoids getting shot in Hyde Park
A woman walking along a Hyde Park street Friday was assaulted by a man with a gun who pulled the trigger, but nothing happened.
Boston police on Wednesday released shocking surveillance video of the incident. The man wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt gets out of a car as the woman walks nearby on Crown Point Drive just before 6:30 a.m.
The man then walks up to the woman and, police said, points a gun at her. The woman’s expression turns to shock and fright as she holds her hands up to her face.
Police said the man pointed a gun directly at her and pulled the trigger, but no shots were fired.
The man then got into the back seat of the car and someone else drives away.
Anyone with information is asked to call 617-343-4595.
