Pr. George's barricade ends peacefully

Matt Zapotosky

A Forest Heights man suspected in a robbery was taken into custody Wednesday after a more than two-hour standoff with police, authorities said.

Corey Delon Forrest, 36, barricaded himself inside his own residence in the 8100 block of Neville Place at about 4 a.m. after fleeing from Prince George’s County police officers who were pursuing him as a robbery suspect, said Cpl. Henry Tippett, a police department spokesman.

Tippett said Forrest remained inside the residence until about 6:30 a.m., when police “talked him out” peacefully.

The incident started around 2 a.m., Tippett said, when a D.C. detective called to request assistance apprehending Forrest, a robbery suspect who was possibly armed, in the 900 block of Comanche Drive. Prince George’s officers tried to stop him, and he got into a vehicle and fled to the 8100 block of Neville Place, Tippett said.

Not knowing if the man had a gun or not, officers initiated a barricade, Tippett said. It remains unclear if the man had a gun and what charges he might face. Tippett said he was only taken into custody several hours ago and charging paperwork was still being processed.
