A Fresno man was arrested on several weapons charges Tuesday after allegedly pulling a gun on two potential car buyers.
Just before 4:30 p.m., officers were called to a 7-Eleven in southeast Fresno at East Chestnut Avenue and South Church Avenue in response to a report of a man being threatened with a gun.
When officers arrived, they found Fresno resident Joua Yang, 22, with a handgun sticking out of his pants pocket.
During the investigations officers discovered that the two victims had came from Oxnard to buy a Honda that Yang had posted on Craigslist.

One of the victims took the Honda for a test drive by himself and was later pulled over by police because the car had and expired registration tags.
The vehicle was impounded and the victim walked back to the 7-Eleven. After returning and explaining what had happened, the suspect pulled his gun on the two victims demanding money and threatening to steal their car and kill them, police said.
The victim then told the suspect he would call the tow company to get the car back, but instead he called the police and reported what was happening.
Yang was booked into Fresno County Jail.
