Police surrounded a Lincoln Park/West End house and made two arrests after a dispute between neighbors on Sunday afternoon.

Witnesses said no shots were fired and no one was hurt.

A group of men living on the 100 block of 22nd Avenue West said the incident started when they were nearly run down by a Jeep Cherokee driven by men who live about a block and a half away, at 2301 W. Second St.

Shortly after, the men in the Jeep returned, and one man pointed a gun at the other men, but did not fire shots, said William Bowman and Enoch Green, who said they were two of the men threatened.

Witnesses and neighbors said the men in the Jeep returned to their house at 2301 W. Second St., where armed police spent about an hour working to remove everyone from the home. Several children, including a baby, were brought out of the house. Eventually, about six armed police entered the house to ensure no one was left inside.

Police Sgt. Brad Wick said the two arrests were made for second-degree assault. He said no one inside the home that was surrounded resisted coming out, but police had to take precaution on the suspicion that someone was armed inside.

"Once we had everybody out, we got permission to go inside to check to see if anyone was left," he said.

The owner of the home, Wallace Saice, said he and his family, including about eight children and nine grandchildren, live at the home. He said Bowman and Green used to live at an apartment building kitty-corner to their home, and often feuded with and threatened his family.

Bowman and Green said they did nothing to start the feud.

"I don't know why [they came after us]," Bowman said. "I'm glad my son or girlfriend wasn't home."
