Barricaded man taken into custody

A man was taken into custody this morning after barricading himself inside an apartment early this morning, police say. According to the SPD Blotter, officers were called to an apartment near 12th Ave NW and Holman Road around 3:30 a.m. The complainant told officers that “they were all drinking when an argument ensued,” the Blotter states. The drunk man then grabbed a knife and barricaded himself in the apartment.

After setting up containment on the area, officers found the suspect just after 4 o’clock passed out in the bushes behind the building. He was taken into custody without incident, police say. Police don’t know if the suspect will be booked into the King County Jail.
