Police Arrest Armed Man After Foot Pursuit in Paterson


Paterson Police officers arrested an armed man following a foot chase in a section of the city Tuesday night. 

Police received reports of a man armed with a gun in the area of Holsman and East main streets around 7:40 p.m. 

When officers arrived at the scene, they found a suspect fitting the perpetrator's description and initiated the investigation by attempting to question the suspect. 

The suspect bolted away from officers and led police on a brief pursuit that ended in an arrest after officers briefly lost track of the suspect in neighborhood yards. 

Police set up a perimeter where they located then arrested the suspect without further incident.
