A man wanted for pulling a gun in North Philadelphia has been arrested after triggering a manhunt that involved a SWAT team and a subway search.

Details are still sketchy, but the drama unfolded about 10:30 a.m., when a man pulled a gun on a woman and cable TV worker and then fled to a building on the 1400 block of Girard Avenue.

A SWAT team was called in but did not find the man after a search.

The manhunt then shifted to the Broad Street Subway line, but again, the man, who was wearing pajama pants and a gray hoodie, was not found.

He was later traced to Northeast Philadelphia and taken into custody there, police said.

His name and other details have not yet been released.
