Rio Rancho Police officers responded to a call of an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the 200 block of 18th Street on Jan. 23, said Lt. Richard Koschade.

The incident led to officers blocking off roads in the area.

“The suspect was believed to be barricaded inside a residence and was later taken into custody without incident,” Koschade said in an email.

He provided no further information.

Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a felony and refers to threatening the victim without justification.
