COLORADO SPRINGS — A Colorado Springs man is facing aggravated robbery and domestic violence related charges after two altercations in his apartment.

At 10:21 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to the 2300 block of Skyview Lane on a report of a disturbance. According to police, there was a domestic disturbance between 30-year-old Skylar McGaw and a woman. That led to a separate disturbance between McGaw and another neighbor, police said.

During the second disturbance, police said McGaw allegedly pointed a gun at the neighbor and took cigarettes from him.

Officers said McGaw then barricaded himself in his apartment and refused to come out. Negotiations and help from McGaw's family led to him leaving the apartment peacefully.

McGaw has been booked into the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center.
