Suspect Flees Cedar City Standoff

May 11, 2015

  A standoff situation Sunday night in Cedar City ended without incident, but also without the arrest of the suspect.

Officers from the Cedar City Police Department responded Sunday evening to a report of an adult male on his front porch waving a handgun around. The man was reportedly also intoxicated. This incident came less than an hour after officers had already issued a warning to the man on a noise ordinance violation.

As officers approached the residence, the male subject exited without a handgun, but he refused to cooperate and fled back into the home.

A perimeter was set up to contain the potentially armed suspect. After a two hour standoff and a search of the home, the man could not be found.

Investigators have worked with the family and the man may face charges when located.
