YONKERS, N.Y. -- There were some tense moments in Yonkers after a man wanted by the police tried to avoid arrest by barricading himself inside his apartment on Morrow Avenue, according to a report by News12.

Neighbors of the unidentified suspect found themselves trapped in, or evacuated from, their own apartments as police swarmed the building in the Jeffrey Park apartment complex early Wednesday morning, the News12 report said.

The three-hour standoff ended when police -- who had gotten their man by breaking into his apartment through a window -- then allowed the rattled residents to go about their everyday business, the News12 story said.

The News12 report did not say why the man was wanted.
