NEENAH, Wis. (AP) - An intruder who claimed to be armed got involved in a standoff with police in Neenah after a woman returned to her duplex and discovered the man inside.

The woman told police she and a friend had returned to the duplex about 8:40 p.m. Sunday and were startled to find the intruder who told them he was armed. The two escaped from the residence and called police.

The Neenah SWAT team responded. And, nearby homes were evacuated. Police were finally able to reach the man by phone about 12:15 a.m. Monday and he surrendered. The 26-year-old Neenah man was checked at the hospital and transferred to the Winnebago County Jail.
