New York State Police say troopers were dispatched to a home on Savitch Road around noon Wednesday to check on the well-being of a 34-year-old man.
When the soldiers contacted the man, he made threats to harm himself and refused to leave the residence.

The man eventually got out of the house and surrendered around 3:05 p.m. Thursday.
A Broome County Sheriff’s Deputy has been positioned nearby to provide assistance to state police if needed.
The man was assessed at the scene and then taken to hospital for a mental health assessment.
