Albany- A three hour standoff between Albany Police and a man threatening to kill himself, ended with the subject in handcuffs.

Anthenia Brown was waving a knife, threatening to stab himself. This started about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday on the porch of his mother's home on West Residence Avenue. Police were attempting to serve a warrant for criminal damage when the standoff started. With guns drawn, officers tried for hours to talk Brown out the house.

"Some of the information that we received that the gentlemen does have access to firearms and also for medical reasons there was canister oxygen inside. Taking all of that into consideration, we had been out here several hours trying to talk the gentleman out, the decision was made that we needed to take him into custody quickly," said Lt. Tracey Barnes, Albany Police Department.

Brown surrendered to police around ten o'clock. He was taken to Phoebe for examination. He faces two counts of aggravated assault, burglary, and criminal damage to property.
