A 21-year-old Dearborn Street man was arrested about 2 a.m. Tuesday, shortly after a neighbor called police about him allegedly breaking into her house while she was babysitting a 3-month-old child and threatening and choking her. Ivan L.Gilbert was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, criminal obstruction of breathing, second-degree menacing and endangering the welfare of a child. The woman told police Gilbert broke into her home about 11:50 p.m. Monday, pointed a long gun at her and accused her of calling police on him earlier.
