FOND DU LAC - Police say that they have taken a man and woman into custody after a SWAT team was called to an apartment building there in the city of Fond du Lac.

According to police, there was a situation involving a "despondent" man who was believed to be armed.

The apartment is in a residential area on Security Drive.  The situation began at about 5:40 a.m. Thursday.

SWAT team members were trying to talk to a 24 year-old man inside an apartment there. 

Fond du Lac Assistant Police Chief Steve Thiry told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Jodi Becker, "we believe there's an 18-year-old woman in the apartment with him, and it is believed that he is armed."

Authorities made contact with the man and woman, and police took them into custody at about 8:55 a.m.

Thiry did not know why the man may be upset or what the man's connection may be to the woman also inside.
