A Rochester woman’s car was reportedly approached by three men with guns in an apartment complex parking lot Monday night.

The woman called Rochester police around 10:25 p.m. Monday from a parking lot in the 2000 block of 8 1/2 Street Southeast to report that her car had just been approached by three men with handguns, according to Capt. Casey Moilanen.

The woman told police that she was sitting in her car when three people got out of a white Toyota Corolla-type car and approached her car, looked at her, made a comment and then left, Moilanen said. The woman believed the men thought she was someone else, Moilanen said.

The men were not located. The incident remains under investigation.
