COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Authorities say a Coeur d’Alene man thwarted a possible criminal act by another man armed with a knife by pulling out his concealed weapon.

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office says the incident was reported last Wednesday by a man who said he was sightseeing with his 2-year-old daughter at Higgins Point on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

The father told police that another man with a knife approached them and demanded money.

The man fled in a van when the father pulled out his gun.

Police say the father tried to follow the van but lost it after a couple of miles.
