Man arrested in Mishawaka SWAT situation

Mishawaka Police arrested a man in the Twelfth Street Apartments complex Thursday night.

Police were called to the apartments near 12th Street and Byrkit Avenue at 6:40 p.m. on a report of a neighbor dispute.

Investigators say that dispute turned into a violent battery situation.

"Once officers arrived there they found a female with life threatening injuries, she's transported to a local hospital," said Tim Corbett, St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Commander.

Mishawaka police say the suspect refused to leave his apartment, prompting officials to evacuate neighboring apartments and close off the road.

The SWAT team was called in to bring the suspect out.

The suspect surrendered shortly after 9:00 p.m.
