Police incident in Annville comes to peaceful end


ANNVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) — Police responded to an incident on Louser Road in Annville on Tuesday.

Police were on the scene for about nine hours after they first responded for a regular wellness check at around 8:30 in the morning. The situation then escalated as police made attempts to contact the man who was inside. “We tried communicating with the subject via telephone, we were not getting any contact, he’s not answering the phone. He was making phone calls out, it got to the point where we had to take other actions,” South Annville Township Police Chief Ben Sutcliffe said.

According to police a man was been taken from the scene and is undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at a nearby hospital.

“The main thing is, everything came out, nobody was hurt, no weapons discharged, no shots fired. That’s always a win-win. We’re all very pleased that it came out the way it did,” Chief Sutcliffe said.

This is a developing story. Abc27 will continue to provide details as they become available.
