MALICIOUS WOUNDING: A 34-year-old woman reported she was involved in a verbal altercation with a relative in the 1700 block of Artisan Avenue at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday when she grabbed the relative's arms.

Once on the scene, officers located the suspect getting into a vehicle, and they were able to remove the suspect from the vehicle and secure the area. A witness on the scene told police the man had been asked to leave a bar in the area prior to retrieving his gun.

ROBBERY: A 19-year-old man reported he was walking in the 300 block of Oney Avenue with friend when an unknown man shoved him to the ground and struck him several times in the face before pulling out a large silver firearm and putting it to his head. The victim said the man told him "if he lifted his head up he would blow his brains out," and he took the victim's wallet, keys and cellphone before fleeing the area.
The responding officer noted the victim's mouth was very bloody at the time of the report, and the victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
