SUNNYSIDE, WA- The Yakima SWAT Unit responded to a hostage situation in Sunnyside Wednesday night.

The SWAT unit assisted Sunnyside Police in a hostage situation on the 700 block of McClain Drive, where a man held three kids inside of an apartment.  

Sunnyside Police first responded to a domestic incident, but when they arrived, a male suspect challenged officers with knives.  The SWAT unit negotiated back and forth for several hours until they convinced him to give up around. 

No injuries were reported and the male subject is expected to appear in court in Sunnyside on Thursday.
