TOMPKINS, N.Y. -- A Cornell wrestler is arrested after police say he broke into a neighbor's apartment and threatened a woman with a gun.

Warner Phipps, 23, was reportedly looking for the victim's roommate when he entered her residence on Valentine Place early Wednesday morning. Police said the roommate hid in another part of the complex until Phipps left.

Ithaca Police recovered a long gun while investigating the crime. They arrested Phipps Saturday night and charged him with burglary and menacing in the case. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
