A man wanted on a parole violation warrant held Jamestown Police at bay for more than three hours Friday in a barricaded room and armed with a knife, according to Jamestown Police.
Police said they were called to a disturbance at about 10:46 a.m. Friday at a residence on McKinley Avenue.
When officers arrived, Alberto J. Acevedo, 27, had fled to another residence on Baker Street in an attempt to avoid capture by police on the outstanding warrant, authorities said.
Jamestown Police said Acevedo armed himself with a knife and barricaded himself in a small room on the second floor of the Baker Street residence. After more than three hours of negotiations with Jamestown Police Crisis negotiators, police said, SWAT team members stormed the residence, removed Acevedo and took him into custody at about 2:20 p.m.
Acevedo was taken to University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Chautauqua for an evaluation. He was later transferred to the Chautauqua County Jail.
Police said additional charges against Acevedo were expected.
