A 21-year-old Lawrence man was arrested Thursday morning on charges of aggravated assault.
According to Lawrence Police Sgt. Ted Bordman, police responded at 3:37 a.m. to a disturbance with weapons in the 600 block of Gateway Court.
Two groups of people from neighboring apartments had been involved in an altercation on their back porches. The victim claimed during the incident the suspect had pointed at him what appeared to be a .40-caliber pistol.
Police contacted all involved parties, identified the man with the weapon, and recovered the weapon, which was a pellet gun.
According to Bordman, the man was arrested on charges of aggravated assault because he allegedly put the victim in fear of bodily harm using a weapon.
The man was arrested at 4:00 a.m.
