A Crafton Heights man was arrested early Tuesday on charges he kicked down the door of an Elliott home and robbed a man over a debt.

Christian Hollis, 24, was being held in the Allegheny County Jail Tuesday night on $250,000 bail.

Cmdr. Scott Schubert said police were called to the 100 block of Furley Street about 11:15 p.m. for a report that a man had kicked in a door, assaulted the male resident who owed him money and then pulled out a silver handgun and began threatening a woman.

The people inside the home said the robber left the home before police arrived.
