Six-hour standoff begins in Cudahy, ends in Caledonia
Cudahy police spent six hours Saturday night chasing after a suicidal man who was wanted by three agencies on outstanding warrants.
Police were called to the 3900 block of E. Cudahy Ave. at 5 p.m. for a 37-year-old suicidal man. While police set up a perimeter around the house, the man fled. Police tracked the man's cellphone to another location and set up a second perimeter, only to find out he had fled again.
Police believe the man was picked up by a vehicle. He was found in the 3400 block of 6 Mile Road in Caledonia, in Racine County, where he remained for three hours.
After a six-hour standoff with the Caledonia Police Department, the Racine County SWAT Team and Cudahy Police, the man surrendered to officers at a family member's house.
Police said the man has a history of depression and violent contacts with police. He was transported to Milwaukee County Mental Health Center.
