Updated July 16, 2021 - 1:21 pm

Las Vegas police took a man into custody Friday after he allegedly stormed into a family’s central Las Vegas Valley apartment and then refused to come out for several hours.

Police spokesman Aden OcampoGomez said police were called to the apartment complex in the 3600 block of West Tropicana Avenue, near Valley View Boulevard, at 10:33 a.m. for a man who went into an apartment there. The occupants of the home did not know the man, so they fled and called police.

The man was later taken into custody without incident, Metro said in an emailed statement sent about 1:10 p.m.

Tropicana was closed near the scene during the standoff.
