A standoff in Omaha this morning ended with a man taken into custody just before 11 a.m. Officer Phil Anson says officers were called to 64th and Center Street for a traffic accident. The man apparently had been involved in a domestic disturbance with a woman inside the SUV. The vehicle rolled during the accident and the woman sought safety and help at a nearby restaurant.
Officer Anson says, “The male party climbed on top of the vehicle. Officers did notice that male party standing on top of the vehicle was armed with a knife and was threatening to harm himself.”
The man stabbed himself several times. Officers were able to de-escalate the situation and the man was taken to a hospital for non-life threatening injuries. He is also under evaluation. The woman was not injured.
