The victim knew the suspect and officers tracked him to a home in the 400 block of Den Adel.  The suspect refused police orders to come out and the SWAT team surrounded the home.  The team went into the home after several hours and the suspect, a 27-year-old Kalamazoo man, surrendered without incident.
