DUNDALK, Md. - A man was taken into custody early Monday morning after he barricaded himself inside a Dundalk home, police said.
Around 10:20 p.m. Sunday, Baltimore County Police were dispatched to a home in the 1600 Block of Searles Road in Dundalk in response to reports of a suicidal person at the home.
When police arrived, they learned a 42-year-old man had locked himself inside the house and was refusing to come out or talk to police.
Because there was a possibility the man intended to harm himself, the Tactical and Hostage Negotiation Teams were called to the scene and local residents were asked to stay inside their homes, police said.
Shortly after 2 a.m. Monday, members of the tactical team were able to get inside the home and take the man into custody. He was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
Police said the man was alone in the home and no injuries were reported.
