SAPD Officers Aid Distressed Man on Loop 306 Overpass
San Angelo Police Department negotiators peacefully resolved an incident involving a man on the ledge of the Pulliam Street exit near the 1200 block of North Loop 306 this morning.
Just after 11:00 a.m., San Angelo Public Safety Communications received an initial phone call regarding an unknown problem on the loop. The caller advised a man was on the Pulliam exit overpass, possibly with a knife. Shortly thereafter, dispatch received additional calls from citizens reporting the same information.
Initial responding Officers made contact with the man, who was visibly distressed. Although armed with a knife, the man never displayed it towards the Officers in a threatening manner.
Police Department Negotiators arrived and began communicating with the 35-year-old man, who eventually went willingly with Officers to a nearby hospital. No one was injured during the incident. Negotiations took over an hour.
