Canonsburg Standoff Ends
CANONSBURG (KDKA) — A standoff in Washington County has come to an end.
Police arrested 59-year-old Larry Warbow.
It all started Tuesday when social workers went to visit Warbow’s mother and said he became agitated.
Wednesday, mental health workers went to the house around 10 a.m. to have Warbow involuntarily committed and that’s when the situation escalated.
Warbow fought with the workers and threatened to kill them. The workers grabbed the mother and they fled the house.
Police and the Washington County CERT Team surrounded the home. Hours later, CERT Team members entered the home.
“They entered the house, they forced basement door open and forced the upstairs door open and two teams entered and once they entered, they confronted the person in the basement downstairs where it’s like his bedroom and he was taken into custody and placed under arrest and taken out,” Canonsburg Police Chief R.T. Bell said.
Warbow was taken to a hospital for evaluation. He will be charged with assault and terroristic threats.
