NORFOLK, Neb. -- Norfolk Police said they were called to a house in Norfolk for reported trespassing.

29-year-old, Joseph Bernie of Sioux Falls, was at a residence in the 700 block of Linden Lane, and officials said he had previously been given a trespass warning not to return there. 

Authorities said when Bernie found out that a call had been made to report him, he ran out of the house.  

When officers arrived, Norfolk Police Division said they spoke to the complainant about Bernie being at the house and learned that he entered the house without permission on the 25th and refused to let the victim leave.

It was reported that a family member found out about the situation and reported it to the police. 

Officers said they checked the house and found a locked garage door, which a witness said Bernie had run into. Authorities reported that Bernie had accessed the attic of the house through a ceiling access door that was in the garage.

According to NPD, officers called for him to come down, but he refused. Officers said they were preparing to enter the attic, but after about 45 minutes, he came out of the attic. 

He was arrested for first-degree false imprisonment, second-degree trespassing and obstructing a police officer.
