JAMESTOWN, NY ( WKBW / Jamestown Post Journal / release ) On Wednesday afternoon, officers from the Jamestown Police Department did make an attempt to serve several Felony Warrants at 198 Fairmount Avenue on subject Robert L. Schroder.

Officers did locate the Schroder at the address, but he refused to comply with the arrest - and barricaded himself inside the upper apartment with a knife.

Additional officers were summoned, including the Jamestown Police Department's SWAT Team, and the Crisis Negotiations Team.

Negotiators from the agency did speak with Schroder for several hours before he surrendered himself to officers on the perimeter shortly after 7:30p.m.

Schroder was charged with the outstanding Felony Warrants - 3 Counts of Criminal Contempt in the 1st Degree and Burglary 2nd Degree, which were from a prior domestic incident. Additional charges against Schroder are expected pending further investigation into this incident.

Jamestown Police Officers were assisted at the scene by members of the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Department and the New York State Police.
