Pittsburgh police arrested an armed man Saturday after an argument in Homewood.

The city SWAT team responded about 5:35 a.m. to a domestic call on Formosa Way, police said. They said a woman reported her boyfriend left after a dispute but returned with a gun.

Police said the woman fled with her three sisters. Officers later spotted the man near the 300 block of Penn Avenue, where he was apprehended just after 6 a.m., police said.

They said he will face charges of burglary, simple assault, theft and carrying a firearm without a license. Police did not immediately release his name.
