A McKeesport man was arrested early Monday for allegedly carrying a loaded pistol inside a Duquesne bar.

A security officer at the Kansas City Saloon along Route 837 called police at about 1 a.m. with a report of an armed man in the bar.

Responding officers confronted Ronald Stanford, 25, inside the bar and found him to be carrying a loaded .38 caliber revolver in his waistband.

Police allege that Stanford attempted to flee by elbowing one of the officers in the chest. Stanford reportedly struggled with police, who were able to subdue him before he could escape.

Stanford is charged with violating the uniform firearms act, persons not to possess a firearm, resisting arrest and aggravated assault.

Duquesne police Chief Richard Adams said Stanford was taken to UPMC McKeesport after his arrest and then to Allegheny County Jail.
