An armed man was arrested inside the Trump International Hotel early Wednesday after D.C. police and the Secret Service received a tip about him.

Bryan Moles, 43, of Edinboro, Pennsylvania, was arrested after police found he had an assault rifle, a handgun and 90 rounds of ammunition at the hotel in Northwest D.C.

Moles was charged with carrying a pistol without a license and possession of unregistered ammunition inside the hotel shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, police said.
