WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Police arrested a man they say pulled a gun on another man just outside New Hanover County's Probation Office Thursday.

It happened just before 5 p.m. at 721 Market Street. They say a man who was leaving the office went to get into a vehicle when another man confronted him, before running to another car and pulling out a gun

That's when police say the victim ran into the Probation Office to report the crime and asked for help.

The Wilmington Police Department's Mobile Field Force was able to find and arrest the suspect in the Creekwood community. They say the man, Martez Bracey, 22, of Wilmington, was already on probation when he was arrested.

Bracey is charged with assault by pointing a gun, 2 counts of breaking and entering into a motor vehicle, and larceny. He is currently in jail under $125,000 bond.
