More Hobo Alphabet

So I was biking along the LA river with Georgie one Sunday afternoon. I saw a somewhat shifty hobo under the Sunnynook footbridge on my way east. Nothing unusual about that. Returning west a few minutes or so later I saw the same guy, but this time holding something. I got closer. He looked at us. I'm pretty sure he was holding an AK-47. I cycled on, feeling very exposed. When I was out of sight I called the cops on my cell. I got put on hold. I then got diverted to Northeast Division. They then re-diverted me to dispatch again. About 30 minutes later I got a call from the cops asking me what bridge it was, and what side of the river. I figure he'd left by then.
