Fargo police arrest woman after 2-hour standoff
Fargo police say it started when someone checking on a home found an unidentified woman inside.
FARGO — Officers surrounded a home near the intersection of 21st Street and Second Avenue South, a couple blocks south of Burger Time on Main Avenue, late Monday night, Dec. 27.
They were called to the home just after 7 p.m., when a house-sitter checked on the house for the homeowner and found a woman inside who they did not know.
Officers said they saw her white hat bouncing around inside the home during a two-hour standoff at the residence.
Several times, police used a loudspeaker, saying they would send a K-9 in to bite the woman if she did not come out.
Just after 9 p.m., police said, the woman tried to slip out the back door only to be greeted by officers. She surrendered and was taken into custody.
The woman's identity was not released as of early Tuesday, but police said they expect her to face charges for the incident.
