NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Police have arrested a man accused of bringing a gun and clown mask Monday afternoon into a NYC Human Resources Administration Job Center in downtown Brooklyn.

Police say just before 2 p.m. on Monday, Rahmeek Younger, 30, snuck the gun in a bag into the office on Clermont Avenue. 

He is facing charges including criminal posession of a firearm, resisting arrest and obstruction. 

WABC-TV reports that it was a client that saw the weapon in the bag and told an HRA peace officer, who then called 911.

The suspect ran once police responded to the scene.

Officials were able to catch up with the suspect, and tasered him.

A gun and a clown mask were found in his bag, police say.
