PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A wanted fugitive is under arrest following a tense standoff in the Bustleton section of Philadelphia.

Around 4:50 p.m. Tuesday, U.S. Marshals were in pursuit of a Mercedes Benz driven by the 24-year-old fugitive.

Authorities say the fugitive abandoned the vehicle and fled into an apartment on the 9900 block of Haldeman Avenue.

It turned into a barricade situation.

An Action News viewer recorded the moment the SWAT team escorted the man out of the apartment complex just before 8 p.m.

The 24-year-old was wanted on aggravated assault charges in Upper Southampton, Bucks County.
