SCRANTON, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — One man is in custody after a standoff with police in Scranton.

The suspect was arrested Monday evening. Scranton Police say Lackawanna County sheriffs were serving several felony warrants to a man on West Locust Street.

The man barricaded himself in his attic with a knife. Police tell Eyewitness News that he refused to come out, which led to an hour-and-a-half-long standoff with authorities.

Eventually he was taken into custody. We are told no one was injured.
