Two men were arrested in southeast Portland on Friday afternoon.

Portland police responded to the 3700 block of Southeast 79th Avenue to the report of a disturbance involving a weapon.

Two men were involved in a dispute and one man displayed a hatchet while the other displayed a handgun, according to police.

Police said the two men did not fight but remained on the scene.

Samuel Sikes, 27, was arrested by police on a charge of menacing for displaying the hatchet.

During the investigation, officers said they developed probable cause to believe that Jude McCrary, 37, was in possession of a weapon in his backpack and that he was a convicted felon prohibited from possessing a firearm.

PPB Bureau Gun Task Force officers responded to assist with the investigation, obtaining a search warrant for McCrary's backpack where they found and seized a loaded handgun.

Officers checked the serial number of the handgun and learned that it was listed as stolen. 

McCrary was arrested on charges of felon in possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a loaded firearm in the city, and first-degree theft.
