DENVER (CBS4) - A suspected robber is in police custody after a chase and standoff on Capitol Hill on Saturday.

The incident ended at a law office near 8th and Pearl. The suspect threatened to hurt himself with a small knife before he eventually surrendered to police.

It began when a woman saw the man in her garage a few blocks away. She told police he threatened her and then started running.

The suspect was spotted after police set up a large perimeter in the area. He was taken to the hospital after suffering some cuts after allegedly breaking through a window of the law office.

The suspect's name hasn't been released.
