The following information was provided by reports filed with the Huntington Police Department:

BURGLARY: A 24-year-old woman reported she fell asleep on her couch at her residence in the 1200 block of 10th Avenue Thursday night, and she woke up at about 5:45 a.m. Friday to find a man wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans rubbing her leg.

The woman said she asked the man what he was doing and why he was in her residence, but she said he appeared to be under the influence of an unknown substance and didn't seem to understand her. She said she was able to push the man out of her apartment before calling police.

She also reported the man took $900 in electronics before she woke up.

Officers determined the man entered the residence by breaking a window in the front door and unlocking it.

Officers were dispatched to a business in the 300 block of 14th Street at 3:35 a.m. for a report of a fight involving a firearm at the business.

An employee reported that an intoxicated man entered the business, saying he was upset with a man and a woman in the business, and he threatened them with the firearm. An employee at the business was able to get the firearm from the suspect, who fled the area.

Officers located the suspect in a nearby apartment, where they located another handgun and several rounds of ammunition.
