ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A man is facing weapons charges after police responded to an argument over someone disassembling a stolen car on Sunday morning.

Rochester police said the owner of the car got into an argument with a suspect who was disassembling the car on Myrtle Street near Laurel Street. The owner told police that the suspect displayed a gun, causing the owner to run from the scene.

After RPD officers responded, they took 36-year-old Antonio Rodriguez into custody. He is facing two counts of felony weapons charges and a menacing charge. Rodriguez will be arraigned in Rochester City Court.

When police responded, the SWAT Team secured the area because the car’s owner reported seeing the weapon.
