A 20-year-old Salt Lake man was arrested Tuesday after he held a gun to the head of a neighbor who had tried to help the man's girlfriend.

The Salt Lake man was apparently having a fight with his girlfriend in his apartment on the 1300 block of Edison Street. Salt Lake police said the tenants of the apartment below asked the man's girlfriend if she wanted them to call the police.The woman said she didn't, but the man apparently became angry because the neighbors had asked. He got a handgun and chased after the neighbors, police said.

The man eventually caught one of the neighbors - an 18-year-old woman - and held her at gunpoint. He then took her back to his apartment and held her there until he eventually surrendered to officers at the scene.
