CONGERS, N.Y. -- A Congers man was collared with an AR-15 assault rifle on Saturday during a dispute with five other men in Congers, according to the Clarkstown Police Department.

Kevork Manougian, 24, was arrested when police responded to 102 Lake Road around 4:15 a.m. for a report of a man with a gun, said Officer Peter Walker.

When officers arrived they found five men having a verbal dispute over a past relationship. An investigation into the disputeĀ found that at some point, Manougian left the scene and returned with the Rock River Arms AR-15 assault rifle and pointed it at one of the men, Walker said.

The rifle was fully loaded and a round was in the chamber, Walker added.

The victim, a 26-year-old male from Congers, was not injured.

Manougian was charged with two counts of felony criminal possession of a weapon, felony criminal possession of an assault weapon and menacing, Walker said.

He was arraigned in Clarkstown Justice Court and is being held at Rockland County Jail on $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday, Jan. 25.
