ALL HOSTAGES SAFE: Police Update on Minnesota Bank Standoff, Suspect in Custody

Police say all hostages are safe and a suspect is in custody after an hours-long standoff came to an end Thursday night at a St. Cloud, Minnesota Wells Fargo bank branch. Chief Blair Anderson said the suspect is known to the St. Cloud Police Department and officers have had "numerous contacts" with him over the last decade. This includes violent crimes. Anderson said the man was supposed to be in court on Thursday for a violent offense. Stearns County Attorney Janelle Kendall said she has already reached out to the District of Minnesota U.S. Attorney's Office in order to determine whether the case should be handled in federal court. For now, he is being held on suspicion of bank robbery and kidnapping charges.
