Man in custody after 5 hour stand-off

City of Bethlehem

The Bethlehem E.R.T. was called-in to 705 10th Avenue in Bethlehem after a man in his late 20’s barricaded himself in the home.

The incident started around 20:00 hours Thursday.  Police tried talking him to surrender.  After losing contact with him on the telephone police used a bull horn to communicate with him.

Police entered the home around 12:30AM Friday and found the man.  They took him into custody without incident and no one was injured.  The man was loaded into an awaiting ambulance and transported to a local hospital.
