Olympia police are looking for a man who reportedly pulled out a gun and threatened some railroad workers Sunday afternoon.
About 3:50 p.m. Sunday, the man confronted the railroad crew in the area of Union Avenue and Plum Street and pulled out what the workers described as a large handgun, Lt. Paul Lower said.
The man then fled east on foot. Olympia police set up a perimeter around the area and used a K-9 to try to track him, but the man could not be found, Lower said.
The Washingon State Patrol and Tumwater police also provided assistance, according to a dispatcher.

The suspect is described as a white or Hispanic man, 35-40 years old, with an average height and build. He was wearing a blue beanie, a zippered blue jacket over an orange vest, and baggy pants, Lower said.
