PEORIA (25 News Now) - A man is in custody after Peoria Police officers say a woman claims he pointed a gun at her, but did not fire it.

According to a release from the department, officers responded to a domestic dispute around 10:30 a.m. Friday between a woman and a man. The woman told dispatchers the man pulled a gun on her inside his vehicle, with officers finding the woman on Garfield unharmed soon after.

Around 4:30 p.m., the release says officers found 22-year-old Titus T. Leonard, who they apprehended and placed into custody without incident. There was no weapon found inside his vehicle. Leonard was arrested for Domestic Battery, Interference with Report of Domestic Violence, Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Aggravated Assault, and Phone Harassment.
