The Oklahoma City Police Department released body camera footage Tuesday of a suspect’s arrest during a hospital lockdown last week. 

Last Thursday, Integris Southwest was put on lockdown, after Donald Ashcraft allegedly threatened to take hostages via a phone call.

When officers arrived, they found Ashcraft locked in a bathroom. After a few moments of negotiation, begging Ashcraft to open the door on his own, responding officers unlocked the door themselves.

Ashcraft is seen in the body camera video with a small knife and fire extinguisher.

The suspect was arrested without injury to any parties involved, according to officers.

Ashcraft was booked in the Oklahoma County Jail Thursday.
