A Snellville man is accused of going onto school property and breaking into a vehicle, stealing a gun and pointing that weapon at a student, according to police.
Daquan Amir Miller was arrested in early February on charges of entering auto, possessing a firearm on school property, aggravated assault and violation of probation.
According to Sgt. Trey Downs of the Snellville Police Department, the incident occurred at South Gwinnett High School. Downs said that Miller broke into a vehicle that belonged to an ROTC instructor and stole a firearm from it.
Walking on the sidewalk in front of the school, Miller approached a student who was leaving the school. He asked the student if he could use his cell phone, and the student said OK. Miller grabbed the phone, pretended to dial a phone number into it, and ran away, Downs said.
The student chased after him and caught up, but then Miller pulled out the gun and pointed it at him. The student ran off in the opposite direction.
Police searched for the suspect for several days and found Miller in an abandoned house Feb. 2.
