Posted: Updated:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -- Police are getting ready to reopen multiple roads in Marshfield that were blocked off as officers worked to arrest a suspect inside a house.

Marshfield police say they went to arrest a male suspect Tuesday evening, but that person went back inside a home on Adler Road and armed himself with a knife. Police did not say why they went to arrest him.

Police say they eventually searched the house and did not find the suspect. Despite that, police say there is no danger to the community.

Roads blocked off included Adler Road and State Avenue. Those roads were set to reopen late Tuesday evening. 

No further details were released.
