PHOENIX – Police took a man into custody after a standoff in a south Phoenix neighborhood Saturday.

Phoenix police say officers responded to a report of stolen auto parts found in the bed of a pickup truck near Central Avenue and Baseline Road and when they arrived realized the man they were looking for had numerous outstanding felony arrest warrants.

Sgt. Lisa Gilligan said when officers attempted to contact the man he tried to escape out a back door but was stopped and barricaded himself inside.

The suspect was eventually found in the attic by a K-9 officer and taken into custody.
