New Jersey SWAT standoff ends peacefully after six hours

CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J – After six hours, a standoff between the Bergen County SWAT team and a man ended peacefully.

Police responded to a call Thursday night after a man hid inside a building after he allegedly harassed customers at a nearby restaurant.

Police said the man threw objects at customers as they were leaving the restaurant from the roof of a house.
Police were called, and the man fled the location, went into a building on Palisades Avenue, and barricaded himself.

The SWAT team was called in. The man surrendered six hours later and was taken away on a stretcher.

The name of the man has not been released.
