A Leavenworth man was arrested after he allegedly broke into a home after tripping a fire alarm at a local hospital, a police spokesman said.

The incident was reported at 3:10 p.m. Monday. Officers initially were called to Saint Luke’s Cushing Hospital after the suspect, a 27-year-old man, allegedly pulled a fire alarm.

“He left before we got there,” said Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

Police later were notified that the suspect had allegedly entered a home in the 1000 block of Fifth Avenue. He allegedly battered a woman who was at the residence, according to Nicodemus.

The suspect fled the home and allegedly tried to enter another residence in the same block.

“Officers arrived and took him into custody,” Nicodemus said.

The suspect allegedly kicked the door of a police car in an attempt to escape, Nicodemus said.

The suspect was arrested for allegations of aggravated burglary, battery, criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct and giving a false alarm.
