Cleveland police say a man who barricaded himself in a building downtown Monday was recently released from a mental health facility.
According to Police Captain Scott Felts, around 3 p.m. Monday, the man was spotted on top of a building next to the Texan Theater.
The man reportedly came down from the rooftop but then barricaded himself in the RT Ellis building.
The standoff ended around 4:30 p.m. when he was apprehended by police. The man, identified as Robert Gonzalez, 19, of Vidor, Texas, is charged with burglary of a habitation, resisting arrest and evading arrest. He’s being held in the Cleveland jail.
The Liberty County Sheriff’s SWAT unit assisted Cleveland PD in removing the man from the building, Felts said.
