After barricading himself inside a south Wichita house for about seven hours on Friday, a man surrendered peacefully to police late in the evening.
The standoff in the 1500 block of South Ida, near Washington and Harry, finally ended shortly before 11 p.m., Officer Charley Davidson said. Officers investigating a robbery went to the house to talk to a man shortly before 4 p.m., but he refused to come outside.
The man barricaded himself in the attic shortly after 7 p.m. and remained there until finally surrendering. As a precaution, police advised motorists to avoid the area for a few hours Friday night.
