Police from a number of Pittsburgh neighborhoods were called Tuesday evening to help disperse a vocal, disorderly crowd that gathered around officers trying to arrest two men in the Spring Hill section of the North Side.

Plainclothes officers saw a man in the courtyard of Rhine Court who appeared to be carrying a gun, police Lt. Christopher Ragland said. They chased him into an apartment where he dove out a third-story window in an attempt to flee and struggled with officers who tried to handcuff him, Ragland said.

As a vocal crowed gathered, a second man began fighting with officers, prompting the call for assistance, Ragland said. The crowd dispersed and there were no reports of injuries or additional arrests.
