LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Police have charged a man with threatening a woman after forcing his way into her home.

Lavon L. Brown, 22, of Louisville, was arrested Dec. 15 on a warrant.

According to the warrant, on Dec. 2 Brown went to the home of the victim and knocked on the door. When she refused to let him in, Brown kicked in the door. Once inside, Brown is accused of grabbing the woman, putting a gun to her head and demanding to know where the money was. The warrant says she had no money.

The woman was able to call police. Brown fled before officers arrived.

The warrant states that Brown had been seen outside the woman's home since then, but fled after police were called.

Brown is booked at Louisville Metro Corrections on charges of burglary and wanton endangerment. Jail records also show he is also being held for fleeing or evading police and drug possession charges.

Police say Brown is the brother of a friend of the victim.
