Raytown police officers took a man into custody Wednesday afternoon following a standoff outside a residence.
Officers responded to a call regarding suspicious activity in the 8800 block of East 84th Street, said Sgt. Dyon Harper. They saw a broken window at a home and two men inside, Harper said.
As officers established a perimeter around the home, one of the men fled, Harper said. Although police negotiators were called to the scene, they were unsuccessful in reaching the person inside the home.
The standoff ended with the man inside the house being taken into custody without incident about 3:30 p.m.

One officer searching the home’s attic received minor scrapes after he fell through the ceiling into the garage, Harper said. The owner of the residence arrived home minutes after the arrest was made.
The standoff caused Raytown School District bus routes to be delayed about a half hour, said Cathy Allie, district spokeswoman.
Late bus routes included those that serve Raytown South Middle School, Spring Valley, Blue Ridge and Eastwood Hills elementary schools, and Northwood School, which serves special education students.
Wednesday was an early release day at Raytown South Middle School, with students dismissed at 1:27 p.m.
