PD: Man caught after 'hostage situation' in Sun City

SUN CITY, AZ - Dozens of police officers were on scene of what they believed was a hostage situation Tuesday morning in Sun City.

Peoria police spokesman Jay Davies said the incident started as a misdemeanor warrant at Jenny's Diner near Peoria and 99th avenues.

The suspect ran away and may have stolen a bicycle since he traveled a far distance quickly, Davies said.

The suspect then broke into a random home near Alabama and 107th avenues where police believed he held a woman hostage.

Air15 video showed dozens of police units parked around the home.

The suspect reportedly surrendered soon after and was apprehended.

No one else was in the home.
