Authorities say the Marathon County SWAT team was called in Sunday night to help search for a man wanted on a warrant.

Lieutenant Randy Albert with the Marathon County Sheriff's Department says the SWAT team was called in around 5 o'clock to execute a search warrant at an apartment located in the 900 block of Jefferson Street in Wausau.

Authorities say the man they were searching for had been involved in an altercation earlier in the day and that the SWAT team was called in because they believed the man might have been armed, but would not give any other details.

Lt. Albert says police were unable to find the man inside the apartment.

The Wausau Police Department is handling the case. Authorities say an investigation is ongoing.
