Gun pulled on Girl Scout selling biscuits

A man who allegedly pulled a gun on a young Girl Scout selling biscuits has been arrested.

According to a report on The Raw Story, the California 59-year-old was taken into custody over the weekend after the alleged incident.

A Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's office spokesman said the girl's father complained to authorities after his distressed daughter returned home.

Police allege John Dodrill pointed the gun at the girl while she was selling Girl Scout fundraising biscuits door-to-door.

"When the victim knocked on the suspect's door, he opened the door and pointed a gun at her," a spokesman said.

Mr Dodrill has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon. His firearm was confiscated.

The Girls Scouts in the US has recently come under fire for linking to a story articles about liberal women, including controversial Texas Senator Wendy Davis.

Senator Davis, a Democrat, rose to prominence after staging an 11-hour filibuster to protest a bill restricting abortions in Texas.
