AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department’s SWAT team was called to a scene in southeast Austin Friday morning for a disturbance. The disturbance call came in at 7:11 a.m., according to police.
At 3:05 p.m. Friday, APD said a suspect was in custody and the scene was no longer active.
According to Austin Police, when officers arrived near the 4600 block of Nuckols Crossing Road, a disturbance between a man and woman could be heard inside an apartment unit. APD said officers also heard objects breaking.
When officers called out for the two people to come down, only the woman left the apartment.
According to police, the man who stayed inside was a criminal with an active warrant out of Hays County for an aggravated assault.
APD said the man refused to come out after officers instructed him to, so SWAT was requested to respond.
Nuckols Crossing was shut down in both directions between Maufrais Lane and Viewpoint Drive, and adjacent apartment units were evacuated. APD said roads in the area opened Friday afternoon.
