NORFOLK, Neb. -- A man was arrested Friday after reportedly kicking down an apartment door, injuring a person, and hiding from police in Norfolk.

On March 22, at 9:09 p.m. Norfolk police were called to an apartment for a report of a man kicking down a door, which injured an occupant.

Police said the suspect had already left when they arrived but later received a tip of where he might be.

A witness had called NPD stating they had given a ride to a stranger who claimed to have kicked down two doors and was running from police.

Officers said they then began to search W Benjamin Ave., where the witness had dropped the man off and found 37-year-old Jeremy Heiderman, 30 feet up in a tree.

Heiderman reportedly refused to climb down, even after being provided a ladder, until four hours later.

Norfolk Police said while Heiderman was handcuffed and taken into custody, he refused to voluntarily sit in the police car and threatened officers.

Heiderman was arrested for second-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespassing, obstructing a peace officer, and resisting arrest.  

He was housed in the Norfolk City Jail and later transferred to the Madison County Jail.
