Topeka Police report standoff over in east Topeka

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Officers with the Topeka Police Department spent over two hours in east Topeka Wednesday afternoon attempting to make contact with a person of interest in an aggravated battery case.

The standoff began Tuesday afternoon in the 2900 block of SE Highland Court, west of the Topeka Correctional Facility. Neighbors said police asking the man to “come out with your hands up” and “let everyone go.”

“When I stepped outside there was just a whole bunch of police, the fugitive task force was out here and this isn’t like the first or second or third time the police have surrounded this guy’s house,” said Cortasha Morgan, a woman that lives near the standoff.

The standoff was reported to be over just after 4:00 p.m. Topeka Police said it’s possible the house was empty during the incident.
