An overnight standoff between police and a wanted violent offender ended with a SWAT team finding the man hiding in the attic of a Federal Way home on Monday, according to a report by KOMO-TV.

The incident started at about 9:30 on Sunday night when a police officer saw the 19-year-old man entering a house on the 2700 block of South 328th Street, the report states. The man had eluded police two days prior. He refused to come out of the home and other people inside the house refused to cooperate with police, the report states.

A SWAT team was dispatched and the standoff lasted through the night. When authorities received a search warrant, they entered the home and found the man hiding in the attic.
