PORTAGE | Two men were arrested after a disturbance at Camelot Manor where the power was cut to a family's home.

Police were called about 4 a.m. Tuesday to Camelot Manor for reports of two men outside a home, one of whom reportedly threatened to shoot his neighbor. The man who reportedly made threats also allegedly had turned off the electrical power to the neighbor's mobile home.

Police found two men when they came out of a nearby home. Alex Wilson-Sayre, 26, and Daniel Chavez, 23, both of Portage, were ordered at gunpoint to get on the ground. Investigators said both appeared intoxicated.

Police said Wilson-Sayre was carrying a .357 Magnum and Chavez was carrying a homemade knife.

A woman in the neighbor's home told officers she heard four loud "pops" that sounded like gunshots and saw Wilson-Sayre outside crouching next to her car before running off. The woman woke the victim, who went outside with a baseball bat because he could hear people outside his home.

The neighbor said Wilson-Sayre initially accused him of saying something bad about Wilson-Sayre's girlfriend, but the neighbor convinced the pair he had not said anything about the girlfriend.

A few minutes later, the power went off to the neighbor's home. Police said he went outside to check what happened and saw Chavez and Wilson-Sayre near his electrical box.

The neighbor told police Wilson-Sayre pointed a gun at him, again making the accusation of using profanity in describing a girlfriend. Police said the gun was pointed at the neighbor until his mother came out of the house, saw what was going on and went back inside to call police.

Wilson-Sayre was arrested on charges of pointing a firearm, intimidation and carrying a handgun without a permit. Chavez was arrested on charges of false informing after police said he denied all involvement in the matter.
