(ABC 6 News) - Rochester arrested one man he allegedly drew a gun during an argument in Mayo Park Wednesday night.

Police say they noticed two men having an argument and say it ended when one man pulled out a gun. Turns out though it may have been just a BB gun. Officers say Kendrick Ankum Jr. ran and placed the BB gun under a bush.

Ankum was taken into custody and is facing potential charges of terroristic threats, 2nd degree assault and disorderly conduct.    

Police were patrolling Mayo Park, behind the Mayo Civic Center, after two recent reports of armed robberies in the area. However, investigators are still looking into whether all the incidents are connected.
