Pittsburgh Police officers attempted to serve a PFA order against an adult female on the 5500 block of Baywood Street around 7:30 p.m.
The female became combative, barricaded herself in her apartment and began throwing objects at police. SWAT was called to the residence, and the woman continued to throw objects.
Around 8:20 p.m., SWAT officers gained entry to the residence and took the woman into custody without incident. Medics on scene treated her for self-inflicted lacerations to her arms.
The investigation continues. When the woman is medically cleared, she could face assault and/or reckless endangerment charges for throwing objects at officers.
Baywood Street was closed for about an hour during the incident.
Tonight, the City-County Building is illuminated to recognize Poison Prevention Week and the 50th Anniversary of "Mr. Yuk" in partnership with Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.
For questions about the lighting at the City-County Building, please reach out to the Office of the Mayor.
