A pursuit that began in Leavenworth ended with a standoff in Platte City, Missouri, according to law enforcement officials.

The incident was reported Friday.

A Leavenworth police officer spotted a man who was wanted for an alleged parole violation around 9:20 a.m. in the area of Fifth Avenue and Marshall Street.

The officer attempted to stop the suspect, who has been identified as Sanquan Brooks, in traffic. But Brooks, 28, allegedly did not stop, leading officers on a pursuit that crossed the Centennial Bridge into Platte County, Missouri, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.

The pursuit ended when Brooks reportedly ran from his vehicle into an apartment on O’Rourke Street in Platte City, Missouri.

Deputies from the Platte County Sheriff’s Office, including members of Platte County’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team and Crisis Negotiations Team, responded to the area, according to Erik Holland, public information officer for the Platte County Sheriff’s Office.

Brooks was taken into custody by members of the SWAT team after a standoff that lasted about 3.5 hours. He had no apparent injuries when he was taken into custody.

“Thanks to the efforts of our deputies and the cooperative relationship with other law enforcement agencies we were able to take Mr. Brooks into custody safely,” Platte County Sheriff Mark Owen said in a news release.

Brooks previously was incarcerated for a 2013 Wyandotte County conviction for aggravated battery, according to a Kansas Department of Corrections website.

He was released on parole in August 2017. In November of last year, he was classified as an alleged absconder.
