Man breaks into Parkland building with machete

Pierce County deputies negotiated with a man who broke into a building armed with a machete in Parkland on Thursday, according to a tweet from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office closed 131st Street south between Pacific Avenue South and A Street South, warning people to avoid the area.

About an hour later, the man surrendered and was taken into custody.

The man was treated by medical staff for minor injuries he sustained prior to his arrest.

Once the man is identified, he will be booked into jail.
