Whitehall Police arrested one man after he pulled a gun on an officer.

The incident happened on Broad Street and Fairway Boulevard early Thursday morning.

A woman told police she had changed the locks to her apartment so the father of her child couldn't come back to the home.

Early Thursday, that man attempted to return to the home with another female. After the suspect had a confrontation with the mother inside the apartment, neighbors called police.

The victim told police that the suspect made his way into her apartment and pistol whipped her. She was taken to an area hospital with a head injury.

When officers arrived on the scene, they ordered the suspect to come out of the home.

That's when police say the suspect pointed his gun at an officer through an open window.

Police evacuated neighbors as a precaution. The suspect was arrested a short time later.

Officer said no shots were fired during the incident.
