HONOLULU (KHON2) — The 46-year-old man who barricaded himself in a home early Friday morning has been charged with terroristic threatening in the first-degree on Saturday, November 16.

He’s been identified as Allen Tagatacnakamoto.

A portion of Likini Street at Wanaka was closed shortly after 5 a.m. on Friday, November 15. Police said that they were working to resolve a standoff. Some residents were forced to stay inside.

Police said they surrounded the home he confined himself in, but the man refused to come out.

No schools were on lockdown, according to the Department of Education, as the barricade was confined to a small area and not near schools.

Around five hours later, the standoff ended and he was arrested for first-degree Terroristic Threatening and Auto Theft in the second-degree at 11:40 a.m.

The man was treated for minor injuries and was taken to the hospital for evaluation, according to HPD.

Honolulu Police, SWAT, and EMS were all present on the scene.

The road closure was later lifted around 2:44 p.m.

He remains in police custody with $30,000 bail.
