Suspect in custody after SWAT standoff in NE Albuquerque
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – An APD SWAT team responded Tuesday morning to an aggravated assault call at a northeast Albuquerque apartment.
Officers were dispatched to 1913 Alvarado Dr. NE, around 2 a.m. Tuesday, where they found a victim who alleged someone inside their apartment threatened them with a knife.
According to APD, the knifeman barricaded themselves inside and refused to come out or comply with officers’ requests – prompting a callout to the SWAT team.
SWAT officers held serve at the scene and eventually used two flashbangs in the apartment building. A person walked out of the apartment shortly afterward and was taken into custody.
The first flashbang was used at around 8:03 a.m. and the other was used at around 8:13 a.m. By around 9:10 a.m., APD cleared the scene.
An investigation is still ongoing.
