What started as a dispute between neighbors ended with one man in custody, following an hour and a half standoff with Erie police.
"Basically, we got information from a female who called hysterical that said somebody was in her home with an assault rifle." said Erie Police Sgt. Mike Brady.
Officers rushed to the scene near West 20th and Raspberry Streets around 4:00 p.m. Tuesday and surrounded a home. But they soon realized something wasn't right.
"The initial house where this action happened and where we maintained the perimeter, he (suspect) had actually fled out of that house, was able to make it through the yards and actually go back to his house." said Sgt. Brady.
The Erie SWAT team was then called in, as police placed barricades at several of the intersections nearby. Officers then surrounded the suspect's home, used a megaphone and convinced the suspect to peacefully surrender.
Police have not released the suspect's name. We're told that he's expected to be charged with terroristic threats and simple assault. At this point a weapon has not been recovered.
The investigation continues.
