A scary situation in Seguin, Texas, came to a peaceful end when an off-duty police officer apprehended a man who was wearing a surgical mask, carrying a handgun and acting erratically.

According to the Seguin Police Department, the officer approached Tony Dwayne Albert II on Sunday after concerned bystanders reported Albert for suspicious behavior. The officer noted that Albert was “wearing tactical style clothing, a surgical face shield, carrying a loaded firearm and extra ammunition.”

Albert entered a local restaurant around that time, asking where he could find a Baptist church and even asking the owner’s daughter for a ride there. As he walked out, that’s when they saw him carrying a gun and called police.

“He didn’t point it at anybody, but he had the gun in his hand and he had a good grip on it,” said Gabriela Jimenez, the owner of Las Mañanitas​​​​​​.

Albert, 33, of Houston, was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.

He was being held Monday at the Guadalupe County Jail on a $100,000 bond, according to online records. CNN has not been able to contact his attorney.

“The Seguin Police Department is extremely grateful to the citizen who called police,” SPD spokeswoman Tanya Brown said. “If this subject was not stopped and apprehended the results could have ended differently.”

The responding officer said Albert thought he was in a different city, according to KSAT. Brown told KSAT that police notified officials in the city Albert named, but they are not releasing the name of the city because Albert did not name a specific church or location.

“We don’t want to scare people,” she said.

Seguin is a city of about 30,000 people located some 35 miles northeast of San Antonio.
