SWAT teams respond to New Berlin home

The New Berlin Police Department's Tactical Team surrounded a home just west of Calhoun Rd. and Roosevelt Ave. after a woman barricaded herself in her home.

New Berlin police were called to the home to assist the Waukesha County Health and Human Services to check on a woman. The woman armed herself with a knife and barricaded herself in her home. Once police were able to penetrate the home, the woman armed herself with an ax and barricaded herself in her room.

Tactical units left the home, while police officers waited outside the home. An hour later, the woman left her home to talk to a neighbor about what was happening. That's when New Berlin police officers captured the woman to make sure she was okay. No injuries were reported during this event.
