(Updated at 2:35 p.m.) Alexandria police arrested a West End man on Sunday afternoon for allegedly brandishing a handgun against his neighbor outside of their apartment complex.

The incident occurred at around 2:45 p.m. in a parking lot in the 2200 block of N. Beauregard Street. Police confirmed that there was a brandishing incident by speaking with witnesses at the scene, and the suspect and the victim were screaming at each other, according to the police scanner.

As the suspect was being arrested, a neighbor told ALXnow that the suspect also pulled a gun on him two months ago.

“It was right outside here at around 9 or 10 p.m.,” the neighbor said. “I did nothing. I was walking across the street and coming home and he was standing there with his gun and he said, ‘Halt,’ and pointed a gun at me. I stopped. He apologized to me. He told me that it was a mistake.”

The man was arrested and charged with brandishing a firearm, according to APD. His identity was not released.

Anyone with additional information can contact the APD non-emergency number at 703-746-4444. Callers can remain anonymous.
