MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — A man who authorities tried to coax out of a house on Dunbar Street in a standoff that lasted several hours has been taken into custody, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

The U.S. Marshals Service has identified the man as Elgin Mahamery, who the agency said was wanted by Myrtle Beach police on assault and kidnapping charges.

Mahamery was previously arrested in Myrtle Beach on June 9 on charges that included assaulting a police officer, according to online jail records. He was released on June 10 on bonds totaling more than $15,000.

The Marshals Service said its Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force had been working the case and found Mahamery Thursday morning. The Myrtle Beach police SWAT team was called in after he barricaded himself in the house.

Earlier, a Myrtle Beach police spokesperson said its officers were assisting another agency in an investigation.

Shortly before noon, a News13 reporter heard officers using a loudspeaker to tell someone to “come out with your hands up.”

The U.S. Marshals Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force worked the case along with Myrtle Beach police, Horry County police and the Horry County Sheriff’s Office.
