OKLAHOMA CITY – A man armed with a knife is in custody after allegedly threatening people while trying to get inside of a local crisis intervention center.
Just before midnight, officials say a man holding a knife attempted to get inside of the Oklahoma County Crisis Intervention Center near N.E. 13th and Lottie.
Authorities say that man was threatening to kidnap people who were inside the building.
When officers arrived on scene, they ordered the suspect to get on the ground.
