ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A SWAT team looking for a suspected accomplice in a forged-check case was forced to break up a birthday party for an 8-year-old Albuquerque boy.
KOAT-TV reports the armed SWAT team on Saturday surrounded Christina Rain’s home as she held a birthday gathering for her son and had to try to corral the young attendees inside.
A suspect had fled police from a Walmart and eventually barricade himself in the storage shed in Rain’s backyard.
Police then ordered Rain and the rest of the party-goers out of the house and to a nearby park.
Authorities say the man was taken into custody.
After the excitement, Rain told a KOAT-TV reporter the young party-goers were heading back to the house to have some birthday cake.
