OKLAHOMA CITY -- A man was taken into custody after a standoff with Oklahoma City police officers.

On March 17, police were called to a home near S.W. 23rd St. and Brookline.

Around 6 p.m., officers say a bail bondsman attempted to serve a felony warrant for assault and battery on 41-year-old Bruce Cass.

However, Cass went inside a home and barricaded himself in a closet.

When officers arrived, the homeowner attempted to get Cass to come outside.

When Cass would not leave the room, police attempted to get him out.

According to the arrest affidavit, Cass was armed with a knife and refused to obey commands.

The report says an officer attempted to tase Cass, but the taser was not effective.

Eventually, police left the home and surrounded the house.

The affidavit says authorities were able to see Cass through the window.

"I observed him sitting in the closet with a pocket knife to his throat and a cell phone in the other hand," the report reads.

Just after 3:30 a.m. on Wednesday, the man peacefully surrendered to police.

Cass was taken to a hospital to be checked out before being taken into custody.
