Developing Story: SWAT Team on Norfolk Street [Updated]
We are hearing news that SWAT teams closed off Norfolk Street earlier this morning. One Boogie reader has a first-hand account of what happened. Apparently all of 106 Norfolk was evacuated at 9:15 am after an arrest went slightly awry. It seems that one resident reportedly resisted arrest by pulling a grenade on the police.

[UPDATE] Our tipster notes:
Was rushed out super fast. Someone had a grenade and threatened to use it while resisting arrest was the word from the cops. They [NYPD] wouldn’t tell us that [regarding initial arrest]. I can’t even imagine…
Just talked to a cop (still in the building waiting for a search warrant!). They responded to a domestic violence call on the top floor.
Residents were allegedly in exile for about 1.5 hours before they were permitted to return. Thankfully, we are told no one was hurt. [UPDATE] The Village Voice followed up with the fuzz and found out that the grenade was inert, meaning unable to explode.
