GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KSNW) — The Garden City Police Department said they have a person in custody, and the two schools have been released from lockdown.

A news release from the Garden City Police Department says around 9:40 a.m., officers were dispatched to East Garden Village for an aggravated assault.

A woman told officers that she and a 22-year-old man got into an argument and slammed a refrigerator door on her hand. The man then allegedly threatened her with kitchen knives and a chair. She was able to get away and called the police.

Officers arrived and tried to call the man out of the house for around an hour but were unsuccessful. They eventually entered the residence, and the man was taken into custody.

Charles O. Stones Intermediate Center and Victor Ornelas Elementary School were placed on lockdown as a precaution until the man was in custody.

The man was booked into the Finney County Jail on suspicion of:

  • Aggravated Assault
