No One Injured in Dundalk Barricade; Man Being Medically Evaluated

The barricade situation occurred in the 1600 block of Searles Road.

No one was injured in a Dundalk home barricade Sunday night after Baltimore County Police Department tactical and hostage negotiation teams helped resolve the tense situation.

County police responded to the home in the 1600 block of Searles Road at 10:20 p.m. Oct. 13 for a report of a suicidal person at the location, according to a statement from police spokesman Cpl. John Wachter.

The woman who made the call talked to police on the scene; she was able to leave the house after making the call, according to Wachter.

Because the 42-year-old man who held the standoff refused to speak with officers or leave the house and because of concern for his well-being, tactical and hostage negotiation crews were called to the site.

Area residents were asked to stay inside their homes until the incident was resolved, according to the statement.

Just after 2 a.m. Monday, tactical squad officers entered the home and took the man into custody. He was taken to an area hospital for a medical evaluation, according to the statement.

There was no one else in the house with the man and there were no reports of any injuries, according to Wachter.
