The Madison Emergency Response Team was called out Tuesday night to deal with a man who barricaded himself in the bathroom of his residence.
Police responded to the 400 block of East Second Street in response to a possible suicide attempt when the situation escalated.
According to a police report, the 28-year-old male was combative with officers and threatened to splash blood on them if they approached him.
The ERT squad was called because of reports the man was armed with a knife, according to police reports. The man surrendered before the ERT squad arrived.
Chief Dan Thurston said Lt. Det. Tyson Eblen convinced the man to move away from the door and let officers and EMS personnel inside to treat his injuries. He was taken to King's Daughters' Hospital without further incident.
