Police are searching for a man who allegedly pointed a pistol at a family member Monday while seeking to settle a $10 debt, according to a Columbus Police report.

Officers were dispatched to the 2800 block of Pecan Street in reference to an emergency call at about 8:45 p.m. When police arrived, 46-year-old Anthony Tucker ran by carrying a pistol. Other officers later saw Tucker running behind some houses.

The 37-year-old victim came to police after Tucker ran away and said that Tucker came to his house to confront him about a $10 debt. After the two argued, Tucker left and came back with a pistol, with which he threatened the victim.

No description was given for Tucker. No further information was available.
