Tense Situation in Germantown Neighborhood Ends Peacefully

Neighbors leaving for work and dropping children at school stepped out their doors to see a large police presence and a tense situation as police, some carrying rifles, communicated with an adult man who was seen acting suspiciously and had locked himself inside of his townhouse.

Montgomery County Police were called to the Seneca Forest neighborhood of Germantown this morning for reports of an adult man acting suspiciously before 8:00 am on Wednesday, Sept. 21, according to Lt. Jim Brown of the 5th District – Germantown. “When officers approached the man it was clear that he was either having a mental health issue or on some sort of drugs,” said Lt. Brown.
