Norfolk man arrested after 6 hour standoff near Hoskins

Members of the Nebraska State Patrol SWAT Team arrested a man early this morning following a standoff that lasted more than 6 hours.

The incident occurred at 55833 853rd Road in Wayne County, approximately five miles northwest of Hoskins.

NSP SWAT was requested after Wayne County Sheriff's Deputies attempted to execute an arrest warrant from Madison County against Davion Seizys, 27, of Norfolk.

Following the attempt, Seizyz barricaded himself in the upstairs portion of the residence.

NSP set up a perimeter around the residence and initiated SWAT procedures at approximately 7:00 p.m. Wednesday night.

There were weapons present in the home and it was believed that Seizys could have been in possession of them during the standoff.

After he refused to exit the home for several hours, the NSP SWAT Team breached a door to gain entry and was able to take Seizys into custody without further incident at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Thursday morning.

NSP utilized multiple assets throughout the standoff including K9 units, the NSP helicopter, and a robot.

Seizys has been turned over to the Madison County Sheriff's Office.
