Officers responded to the 8500 block of Fairview Avenue on Tuesday afternoon regarding service of a protection order. Officers had information that the subject of the protection order had threatened the protected party with a knife. The suspect refused to speak with police and was inside a third story apartment. Officers ensured the safety of the protected party and attempted to make contact with the suspect. No one but the suspect was in the apartment and around 7:00 p.m. nearby apartments in the impacted building were evacuated as a precaution while officers attempted to get the suspect to come out peacefully. With the assistance of a police K9, Officers were able to take the suspect into custody around 1:30 am. The suspect received minor injuries from the K9 and was taken to the hospital for treatment of a prior medical issue. He remains in the hospital this morning and charges are pending.
Officers would like to thank the residents who were impacted last night for their patience and cooperation as we worked to resolve the situation peacefully.
