A Utica man is facing several weapon charges following a Halloween patrol and subsequent arrest by Utica Police.

Officials say members of the UPD were conducting a proactive Halloween holiday patrol in the area of Kemble Street near Grove Street at approximately 10PM. Officers on patrol say they turned their attention to a group of people and one of the people in that group appeared to be holding a weapon at his side.

Upon witnessing the group and an individual possibly armed, police say they attempted to conduct a stop and the male in question fled on foot. Police say while in pursuit of the suspect, officers witnessed the man throw something over a fence and shortly after officers were able to catch up to him.
