A California man was taken into custody over the weekend after he allegedly pulled a gun on a young Girl Scout who was selling cookies.

A press release from the Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's office that the father of the girl, who is a minor, contacted authorities after he saw 59-year-old John Dodrill point the gun at his daughter while she was selling cookies door-to-door on Sunday.

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

Dodrill was taken into custody for suspected assault with a deadly weapon. His firearm was confiscated as evidence, the sheriff's office said.

The Riverside County Sheriff-Coroner's office has asked anyone with information about the case to call Officer Garcia #4162 at the Southwest Sheriff’s Station at 951-696-3000.

The Girls Scouts organization has recently come under fire from conservative activists and pundits for linking to a story articles about liberal women, including Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D).
