A 14-year-old wanted on a warrant for assault allegedly punched out a window and pushed a relative Thursday, though police originally responded to a report he was carrying a gun.

Police responded to the 600 block of First Avenue NW at about 4 p.m. Thursday on a report of a person with a gun, according to Police Chief Krueger. Once there, police spoke to a relative who told police there was no gun but the 14-year-old had allegedly punched out a window and pushed her. The 14-year-old called the relative asking to come over, but the relative told him no, since he had a warrant for assault.

The 14-year-old came over anyway and the relative told him to leave, or she would call police. The young man allegedly became angry, punched out a window on a door and pushed the relative, according to Krueger. The 14-year-old left before police arrived.
