HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A man is in police custody after barricading himself inside a home for hours Sunday afternoon in the Lakeside area.

Around 2.30 p.m., officers went to the 2600 block of Kenwood Avenue searching for a man wanted on two felony assault warrants.

Upon arrival, no one answered the door and the officers left. But the officers returned to the residence around 4 p.m. after receiving a tip that the man was inside the home.

Kenwood Avenue between Cottage and Cedar Croft Street remained closed into the late evening hours while police tried to get the man to surrender.

Police said during the investigation the man suffered a self-inflicted injury and was taken to the hospital to receive treatment, but have not released the severity of that injury.

Police have yet to release the man’s identity and the investigation remains ongoing.
