Charges have been held against a McKeesport man arrested last week in the city on weapons charges.

Davon Wyatt, 27, appeared before Magisterial District Judge Eugene Riazzi on Monday following his May 20 arrest. Wyatt is accused of fleeing after detectives who were part of the Allegheny County District Attorney's Narcotics Enforcement Team tried to approach him and two other men in the 600 block of Sixth Avenue.

McKeesport police Sgt. Mark Steele testified he saw Wyatt throw a silver handgun over a fence while he and other officers were pursuing him in the area of Sixth Avenue and Sinclair Street.

Police recovered the weapon — a loaded .45-caliber Ruger semiautomatic pistol — after Wyatt was apprehended.

Wyatt is charged with firearms not to be carried without a license, persons not to possess a firearm, disorderly conduct, tampering with evidence and escape and remains jailed on $10,000 bail.

His formal arraignment is set for July 21.
