Police Respond To Welfare Check In North St. Cloud
ST. CLOUD - Several squad cars and the St. Cloud police department's SWAT team were called to help negotiate with a man who had barricaded himself in a north St. Cloud home.
Assistant Police Chief Jeff Oxton says police were called to the home in the 100 block of 28th Avenue North at about 5:00 p.m. this (Tuesday) afternoon.
The caller said a 22-year-old St. Cloud man was displaying some erratic behavior. There was also the mention of possible weapons inside the house. The man had barricaded himself in the house and refused to cooperate with police.
SWAT team negotiators were eventually able to talk the man into coming out at about 6:40 p.m.
No charges are expected to be filed. He was brought to St. Cloud Hospital for evaluation. No one was hurt in the incident.
