ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC)--  Rochester police responded to the Civic Center South parking lot around 9:25 p.m. Sunday after a female officer reported being threatened at gunpoint.

Officers say the officer was writing parking tickets when a man approached her, pulled a gun from his waistband and then, "threatened to kill her if she wrote him a ticket," said Lt. Casey Moilanen of the Rochester Police Department.

Lt. Moilanen says the man then walked away, but about an hour later officers tracked down a person who matched the suspect's description.

Officers arrested Cory Dozark, 30, of Rochester.  They say he did not have a gun on him, but are charging him with 5th degree possession of a controlled substance, because he did have a small amount of marijuana.
