ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque police arrested a man who broke into a home, then barricaded himself inside for hours.
It happened earlier Tuesday afternoon near Carlisle and Menaul. Police say 27-year-old William Hodges broke into a woman’s home.
Neighbors say they heard police trying to get the man to come out, but it didn’t work.
“They were just loud booms, trying to scare him to get him out of the house, but nothing’s really happened. I think he’s moved a curtain or blinds to make sure he was OK,” a neighbor said.
Police say he caused about $1,000 in damages to the home.
Witnesses say prior to the standoff, the man was going from house to house causing problems.
