KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

An off-duty Jackson County Sheriff's deputy said he was threatened by a man wielding a syringe on the city's east side tonight.

The incident occurred at 5807 East Ninth Street at about 8:50 p.m.

Kansas City police responded to the call. A short foot chase followed, and somehow the suspect made his way onto the roof of a home in the area.

At some point, shortly thereafter, police stunned him with a Taser and arrested the man. Police say the suspect  is behind bars tonight and will be charged with assault on a law enforcement officer.
