Man in custody after barricade in central Las Vegas apartment

Las Vegas police took a man into custody after a barricade situation Saturday afternoon at a central valley apartment complex.

About 12:10 p.m., police received a report of a domestic dispute at the Tamarus Park apartment complex near the intersection of Flamingo Road and Tamarus Street, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Mark Lourenco said.

Police said a man was inside the apartment threatening a pregnant woman with a knife. The woman left the apartment safely, but at the time, police said the man was still inside.

A neighbor, Cheyenne Wilson, said she had been told to leave her apartment.

“There was a knock on my patio door, and they told me this is a tactical situation and I had to leave,” Wilson said.

The man was taken into custody peacefully, police said.

No injuries were reported, Lourenco said.
