ATLANTIC CITY — A North Carolina man was arrested Sunday night after he was found to be in possession of a loaded, stolen handgun, police said.

At 6:52 p.m., officers responded to a report of a man assaulting a woman inside a vehicle near Brighton and Atlantic avenues. When officers found the car, they spoke with the driver, K’Vonne Smith, 29, of Winston-Salem.

Smith told police he was arguing with a female passenger. He was removed from the vehicle and admitted to having a handgun, police said. Officers took Smith into custody and found the loaded gun in his pocket.

The handgun was reported stolen from North Carolina, police said. A police investigation found no evidence of an assault, but Smith was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and receiving stolen property. He was taken to the Atlantic County jail in Mays Landing.
