A York City man allegedly pulled a gun on two people in a dispute over a parking space, according to police.

Rafael Cordero-Nieves, 23, of 140 W. Jackson St., is charged with terroristic threats, simple assault and harassment, according to charging documents.

On Friday at around 10 p.m., York City police responded to a call of a man with a weapon on the 100 block of West Jackson Street, documents state.

Police say two people told them they were confronted over a parking space by a man identified later as Cordero-Nieves. The two people told police that during an argument over the parking spot, Cordero-Nieves pulled a weapon on them, documents state.  Cordero-Nieves allegedly displayed a silver-colored semi-automatic handgun in his right hand, cocked the hammer and said, "It better be moved by the time I get back," documents state.

Police say Cordero-Nieves got back into his vehicle and circled around the block, returning as police were interviewing the victims. The officer approached Cordero-Nieves and saw a silver handgun in a holster on his right hip, documents state. He was taken into custody, and his weapon was removed.

Cordero-Nieves remains free on $25,000 unsecured bail.
