A man walking on East Glenwood Avenue early Tuesday morning told Akron police he was chased by a man brandishing a handgun, but was able to escape his pursuer.

Police said a man approached and began talking to the 20-year-old, who did not respond and continued walking.

The suspect then began to chase the man, who told police he saw a black handgun in his pursuer’s hand and was able to outrun him.
