TEMPE, AZ — Police have detained a woman after a barricade situation at Tempe Marketplace Tuesday afternoon.

An officer responded to a call of park ranger possibly assaulted at Mesa's Riverview Park near Dobson Road and Rio Salado Parkway Tuesday.

An RV that may have been involved in the incident left the park and ended up at Tempe Marketplace, near McClintock Road and Rio Salado Parkway.

The individual refused to get out of the RV and police treated it as a barricade situation.

The woman was eventually detained a short time later and is under observation for mental health evaluation.
