INDIANAPOLIS (April 16, 2015) – SWAT has been called to help police serve a warrant on the city’s south side.

A SWAT team was called in to help after police said they believed their subject hid in a closet because he did not want to go back to jail.

Police believe that the man may be armed, which is why backup was called.

It is not abnormal for SWAT teams to be called in to assist police serving warrants to people with a violent or criminal history.

We have a crew headed to the scene and will update this story as more information becomes available.
