BOULDER, Colo. — Police  in Boulder are investigating two incidents involving a gun on University Hill.

The first incident happened Thursday when a woman left a party shortly before midnight and was walking near 20th Street and Mariposa Avenue.

A person came up behind the woman, choked her and forced her into the back seat of a white vehicle similar to a Subaru SUV, police said.

A man in the back seat showed a handgun in his waistband and said, “Just let me do what I want,” police said.
