SWAT team in Evansdale prompted by suicidal man

Posted: Updated:
EVANSDALE (KWWL) -

Police responded in force to a call from an Evansdale man who said he was suicidal Wednesday afternoon.

Evansdale Police and Black Hawk County Sheriff's deputies, as well as a SWAT team from Black Hawk County, all responded to a home near the intersection of East End Avenue and Ayirs Street in Evansdale.

Deputies on scene said a man threatened suicide at a doctor's office, and police found his car at his home just before 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The man never threatened anyone but himself, officials said, but the SWAT team was called in case that changed.

The man was handcuffed outside his house and taken to a hospital for evaluation, officials said.
