(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Police in Rochester didn't take any chances after receiving a report that a man had a gun and was causing problems inside a home.

The call came in around one o'clock Wednesday afternoon. Police responded to the home near Kutzky Park, but nobody would answer the door. Authorities surrounded the home and eventually made contact with the woman who lives there. She was at work and didn't know of any problems going on inside the house.

Police say a man eventually tried leaving the home and was arrested. He did not have a weapon and was alone inside the home. Police say he knows the woman who lives there.

The man happened to be wanted on an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. He was booked on that, but won't face any charges for this incident.

Police don't know who made the initial call, and at this point, are treating it as a false report.
