At 0845hrs today, Police were called to a dispute at 362 Lawrie St, 2nd floor. PO Joseph Sulikowski and Arcadio Rivera responded. As they entered the second floor apartment, they found the door had been kicked in, then observed the suspect, describe only as a Hispanic male in his 20’s, holding the victim at gun point.
