At about 4:30 p.m. Friday, a person flagged down a police officer and said there was a man with a gun at the Lawton Street Community Center on the 1200 block of Lawton Street, police say. The officer drove to the scene and found a large crowd at a repast.
People at the scene told the officer there was a man sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot, saying he had pointed a gun at a 30-year-old woman during a fight, then assaulted her just minutes earlier.

The suspect, whose name has not been released, was charged with aggravated menacing and sent to the Summit County Jail. Additional charges are pending.
