Police apprehended a man armed with a knife who caused a commotion in a Brentwood dentist office Thursday afternoon.

“Officers arrived on scene here at Gentle Dental,” said Lt. Walter O’Grodnick of the Brentwood Police Department. “There was a report of a person that was causing a disturbance, and he had a knife. Our officers responded on scene, and we were able to make contact with a male subject outside of the business. He was taken into custody without incident.”

Police are still trying to piece together exactly what happened, said O’Grodnick. A female subject was also taken into custody. Her role in the incident is unclear at this point.

A knife was recovered at the scene, though investigators had not yet confirmed with witnesses if it was the knife they saw the suspect carrying.

“It came to a successful conclusion, and nobody was hurt,” O’Grodnick said.

Investigation into the incident by the Brentwood Police Department is ongoing.
