FRANKLIN SQUARE - Police blocked off a large section of Franklin Avenue this evening after a man barricaded himself inside a closed restaurant.

Investigators say the man set off an alarm at the Alpine Garden restaurant around 5 p.m. They say since they were unsure if the man had any hostages or if he was armed, they called in SWAT and K-9 units, just in case.

Police say they eventually entered the restaurant and found the man hiding and arrested him.

Officials say no one was hurt in the incident.
