RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - A man is in custody after police say he broke into a Reno apartment, then barricaded himself inside for more than two hours.

Reno Police got a call around 12:30PM Tuesday, September 3, 2019 of a possible burglary at the Sherwood Apartments. Police say a man broke into an apartment and attacked the people inside. The people escaped, and the man barricaded himself inside the apartment.

Police say the man was reported to be armed with some type of edged weapon, so SWAT was called to assist.

After about two and a half hours of negotiating, police say the man surrendered and was taken into custody without incident.

Police have not released his name, but say he is facing charges of Obstructing and Resisting with a Deadly Weapon and Trespassing.
