Police were first called to the scene at a home in Central Austin in the city's idyllic North Loop neighborhood just after 6 a.m. Sunday morning.
Officers apprehended the alleged perpetrator after they were notified that he went to a second location in the same block and “made contact” with other individuals, though no violence was reported at the second location.
The suspect is receiving medical care, but did not have serious injuries, Knouse said. Officials couldn’t say how the suspect was injured, but said police officers did not have to use force during the arrest.
The Austin Fire Department and the Department of Public Safety also responded to the call.
Typically, Knouse said, police do not expect an uptick in violence around the Halloween holiday.
