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.
