ST. CLOUD -- A nearly three-hour standoff between a 53-year-old man and police was resolved Tuesday afternoon in St. Cloud.

Authorities were called out to the incident in the 200 block of 19th Avenue North just before 3:00 p.m. in an active suspect situation.

Sergeant Jason Burke says officers were investigating an incident involving a possibly suicidal person. A neighbor said officers have been called to the home multiple times in the past year. Negotiators worked to talk with the individual and resolve the situation.

The situation was resolved when the man came out of the house at about 5:45 p.m. Burke says he was cooperative and he taken to the St. Cloud VA for assessment.

No crime was committed during the standoff and nobody was hurt.
