TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a man walked up to the Topeka police headquarters and threw a rock through the glass front door.

Police say an officer working the front desk heard the glass break about 10 p.m. Friday and thought the person had shot through the door.

An emergency call drew officers from several surrounding agencies.

Officers took the apparent rock-thrower into custody. He wasn’t identified because he appeared to be having a mental crisis.

He was held at the Shawnee County jail.
