Upon arrival, officers learned that the male subject had knocked on the door of the apartment and was greeted by the tenant. The suspect, not known to the resident, asked if he could fill up his water bottle. The resident allowed the suspect inside at which time he sat on the couch and refused to leave. The resident repeatedly told the suspect to leave, which he still refused. The resident was able to leave his apartment and phone police.

Officers attempted to contact the suspect, who was sitting inside the apartment. The officers observed the suspect seated in an armchair handling knifes and making incoherent statements. The suspect ignored verbal commands to drop the knives and exit the apartment. The suspect continued to ignore repeated commands by officers and eventually shut and locked the front door to the apartment. 

The Prescott Police Department SWAT team was called out to respond to the incident due to the irrational behavior demonstrated by the suspect. Less lethal munitions were deployed into the apartment and the suspect eventually surrendered and was taken into custody at approximately 5:30 a.m. 

The suspect was identified as 32-year-old Adam Tucker. Tucker was medically cleared by the Prescott Fire Department for minor injuries and booked into the Yavapai County Jail on first degree burglary, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
