A man who rammed a vehicle into an Albuquerque police car and then barricaded himself in a home now is in custody.

Albuquerque police say the suspect climbed out of a window and was arrested behind the home Tuesday afternoon.

Police originally responded to a call about a suspicious situation near Richmond and Indian School about 11:20 a.m.

One man at the scene was carrying a handful of what appeared to be stripped copper.

Police say the suspect intentionally rammed into the officer's police vehicle and fled on foot.

A woman was taken into custody at the scene.

The names of the man and woman weren't immediately released.
