Redmond Police had a couple of volatile situations on Thursday  - one lasted for about five hours.


Several streets in Redmond were blocked off by police as an unidentified man, who allegedly threatened 3 women in 2 separate incidents with a knife, holed up in his home on southwest 7th Street. 


Around 3:30 Thursday afternoon, Redmond Police blocked off 7th Street between Highland and Glacier and residents were evacuated. 


A nearby bank closed, and using a loudspeaker, police urged the man to come out of his home. 


Highland Ave. was also closed and the region's "CERT" (SWAT) Team was called. 


Our news partner, News Channel 21 reports neighbors said the man's mother died late last year; he had been laid off from his job and evicted from his apartment.


Around 8 p.m., the "CERT" team entered the man's home and found a man lying on the floor. He was taken to St. Charles - Redmond for evaluation.
