An assault suspect who initially refused to surrender to police eventually decided to cooperate Friday morning. During the situation, police shut down eastbound Uintah at MacArthur and advised nearby St. Mary's High School to go on lockdown.

Police say James Canody, 34, is suspected of hitting a woman and breaking her nose on March 15 at at 2419 N. Union Blvd.

At first, investigators didn't know who to suspect of that assault. As their case developed, however, they identified Canody and learned he was living at 2531 E. Uintah St., #8.

The CSPD Tactical Enforcement Unit went to that address Friday morning, and Canody originally refused to come out. Detectives sought a search warrant for the apartment, but before they could execute it Canody decided to surrender peacefully.

He was arrested for second degree assault and taken to the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center.

Afterward, the road was reopened and the school lockdown was lifted.
