Police: Georgia man arrested after South Fulton SWAT situation
CITY OF SOUTH FULTON, Ga. - A City of South Fulton man is in custody after a SWAT situation involving a knife morning Wednesday.
South Fulton officials say they received a call to a home on White City Road in reference to a person threating to stab people inside the home with a knife.
When police got to the scene, the victims were able to safely get outside the home, leaving only the suspect, identified as 35-year-old Matthew Langford, inside.
Police told FOX 5 that Langford barricaded himself in the home and refused to come out, leading to a standoff with SWAT.
Eventually, SWAT used a "less-lethal" gas in the home, leading to Langford to surrender.
After he is treated, Langford will be transported to the Fulton County Jail charged with two counts of aggravated assault.
