Mandan Police, along with several agencies from the area, surrounded a trailer in Twin City Estates in Mandan in an effort to capture an escaped prisoner.
William Rawson escaped from the McLean County Detention Center Sunday, September 18th. Rawson was in his girlfriend's trailer in Mandan the morning of Monday, September 19th. The scene was tense as authorities said Rawson claimed to have a gun. It's believed that Rawson's girlfriend was not home when the stand off occurred.
Rawson ran out from inside the trailer just after 12 p.m. and climbed a tree. Authorities had him surrounded and continued negotiations for his surrender.
The stand off finally concluded at approximately 12:30 p.m., with no injuries. Rawson is back in custody.
