UPDATE: 5:06 p.m., 1/27/2013
I just got the following press release from Puyallup Police regarding today's SWAT incident and arrest:
On Sunday, January 27, 2013, at 1240 hours, Puyallup Police Department officers responded to the 200 block of 27th Avenue Southeast for a domestic violence incident.
Officers arrived and determined a 53-year-old male Puyallup resident had committed a domestic violence act against his wife, whom had escaped the residence prior to officer’s arrival. Responding officers attempted to contact the male suspect, but he was uncooperative and indicated he was armed. The suspect refused to exit his home and would not communicate with officers.
Metro SWAT was dispatched to the scene. Metro SWAT attempted to contact with the suspect multiple times without success. Some residences in the area were evacuated due to the police activity. Metro SWAT eventually entered the home and took the suspect into custody without incident.
The suspect was later transported to Good Samaritan Hospital for treatment of an unknown medical issue.
The Puyallup Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit (MCU) will continue to investigate this case.
Puyallup police have reportedly arrested a man who allegedly barricaded himself inside of his home.
The News Tribune is reporting auhtorities arrested the man about 4:30 p.m. They were initially called to the house four hours earlier in the 200 block of 27th Avenue Southeast for domestic violence, and the man was reportedly uncooperative when authorities arrived.
Several Patch users have reported seeing SWAT Team officers in the area.
Patch will have more on this story as it becomes available. Like us on Facebook to keep up.
