I believe this is the same man that was parked next to me. I was at Family dollar on North College road about 8 pm he was backed into a parking spot and when I got to my car door he started to get out of his car I pulled my pepper spray and he got back in the vehicle and left. He was in a Red vehicle at the time and I didn’t get a make or model. I could identify him if it’s the same person. I did make a report. This sounds exactly like what almost happened to me.
