Boston Police report arresting a resident of Brown Avenue in Roslindale after he allegedly used what looked like a gun to threaten a resident of the intersecting Ridge Street in an argument around 10 a.m. on Sunday.
Officers set a perimeter around the home and requested assistance from the BPD SWAT Team. While awaiting the arrival of the assisting units, officers were able to convince the suspect to exit the building at which time they conducted a pat frisk with negative results. SWAT Team members then arrived on scene and performed a protective sweep to clear the residence, removing the remaining occupants. The officers were then granted permission to search the house which led to the recovery of a silver and black Umarex 4.5mm .177 caliber BB gun.
Christian Roman, 21, was charged with assault by means of a dangerous weapon, police say.
