Officers arrested a man for assault and recovered an illegal handgun on the Upper East Side of Manhattan late last month. Police Officer Bruno and Nunez responded to a call of an assault at the Isaacs Houses located at 1830 1st Avenue and were informed that the suspect fled and may have a handgun.
The two officers observed a man fitting the description of the suspect and the man fled from as they approached. The suspect attempted to hide inside the Washington Houses located at 1895 2nd Avenue, but was arrested on the second floor after officers searched the building. A loaded Highpoint .380 handgun with seven rounds of ammunition was recovered at the scene along with a quantity of marijuana.
