Timothy Oswald (a.k.a. Luigi Castagnetta) 28, of 117 Sherwood Road, was arrested on several weapons charges. Delaney says he was found in his car along with a .32 caliber handgun, brass knuckles, and a switch blade.
Akeem Castro, 20, of 18 Leyfred Terrace, was with Oswald at the time, and was also arrested and charged with possession of a firearm.
Both suspects were arraigned in Springfield District Court on Thursday.
