LANSING - Police chase down and arrest a man they say pointed a gun at a woman, while he was riding a stolen moped. Police were called to the 700 block of N. Chestnut Street Monday where a woman on the phone said she was threatened by two people riding a moped. The woman said a man riding the moped was pointing a handgun at her and others. When police arrived the two on the moped sped away. Police pursued. The moped became stuck behind a residence in the 500 block of W. Saginaw Street. The two ran away on foot. An officer says he saw one of the suspects throw the gun. Officers quickly caught and arrested that man, and located the gun. The second suspect was able to elude the police. The man police arrested is a 19-year-old Lansing resident. He's expected to go before a judge Tuesday. Police are attempting to determine the identity of the second suspect.
