Verbal Dispute, Weapon Removed
A man's brother threatened to physically assault him at a home on Batavia's west side, according to reports. The brother left the residence prior to the reporting officer's arrival before 6:50 p.m. The family is concerned that the brother is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, according to a police report.
The brother does have a weapon in the house but does not have a current firearm owner's identification program card. The weapon was removed into evidence for safekeeping. The brother was contacted and advised that he would need to obtain a valid card. A referral to Victim Services was made.

The officer accompanied the man to his home, without incident. The involved parties were referred to their respective attorneys.
