By Energeticcity.ca staff


A Dawson Creek man, who barricaded himself in a house on Monday, has finally surrendered to the RCMP.

The unidentified man locked himself into a residence at around 5:00 p.m. in the 600 block of 99th avenue.

Officers attempted to negotiate with the male throughout the night, but he refused to surrender.

People who lived near the incident were kept out of the area during the standoff, out of concern for their safety.

The male was taken into custody under the Mental Health Act and has been brought to the hospital for evaluation.
