MILLVILLE, N.J. (CBS) – A man is in police custody after an hours-long barricade situation in Millville, Cumberland County.
Officers took 32-year-old Andrew Wilder-Muth into custody at about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday.
Neighbors say it all started around 4 p.m. Monday, near North 2nd and F Streets. Authorities blocked off the area and evacuated homes while the standoff unfolded.
“I got kicked out of my house around 4 p.m. last night. I’ve been sitting on the street ever since then,” said neighbor Brandon Fish. “I’ve been siting on the curb for hours.”
Fish says the man involved in the barricade has had a rough time.
“He went off the deep end. He lost his mom and dad, and he got bad news that his sister passed away. We don’t know nothing yet, but it’s a lot of he said, she said,” said Fish.
Wilder-Muth was taken to the hospital but suffered no apparent injuries.
Police have not said what led to the barricade.
Criminal charges are pending.
