HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — After more than four hours surrounding a house in Holland, police took one person into custody Sunday evening.

There was a large police presence in the area of 22nd Street and Central Avenue, where the suspect was holed up in a house.

Holland Department of Public Safety Capt. Keith Mulder told 24 Hour News 8 the suspect was wanted for a felonious assault with a handgun that happened elsewhere.

He said the situation started when an officer tried to pull over the suspect’s vehicle, but the suspect took off. There was a short car and then foot chase that ended at the house on 22nd.

Mulder said authorities initially took the suspect to the hospital. It was unclear if that person remained hospitalized or had been jailed later Sunday.

The suspect’s name was not released Sunday night.

Ottawa County Dispatch said there was never a threat to the public.
