Rock Hill police escorted a suspect from a home in handcuffs Wednesday, after he allegedly barricaded himself inside a home for hours. The suspect ran into the home after a traffic stop.

Three children were in a Rock Hill home Wednesday when an armed man rushed in before a three-hour barricade standoff with officers, police said.

The suspect, Tevin Anderson, 26, was released Friday from Piedmont Medical Center and is in custody at the Rock Hill City Jail, said Capt. Mark Bollinger of the Rock Hill Police Department.

Rock Hill police had officers on 24-hour guard with Anderson, while he was hospitalized at PMC, police said.

Anderson has been charged with unlawful carry of a handgun, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, purchase of a controlled substance within proximity of a park, trafficking oxycodone and three counts of unlawful conduct toward a child, Bollinger said.

Police had previous arrest warrants on Anderson for hit and run, leaving the scene of an accident, driving under suspension and uninsured motor vehicle.

Anderson, also accused of dog torture in the past, is accused of barricading himself in a Black Street house for three hours Wednesday. The three children and other adults who were in the home when Anderson rushed in were able to escape, Bollinger said.

Police seized oxycodone and a weapon, Bollinger said.

Anderson was taken to PMC after the standoff, because police believed he may have ingested a substance.

The home where the incident took place belonged to Anderson's girlfriend, police said. Police have not released the identity of the children who were in the home when they said an armed Anderson rushed in and refused to leave.

A patrol officer made a traffic stop on Anderson around noon Wednesday due to outstanding traffic warrants, police said.

Anderson, armed with a handgun, fled into the home, police said.

Anderson faces several other warrants for failure to appear in court from past arrests that include felony weapon and drug charges. The warrants include failure to appear for a 2016 animal torture arrest, in which he is accused of videotaping himself throwing firecrackers at dogs.

Anderson has felony convictions dating back to 2009 for weapons, drugs, conspiracy and failure to stop for police, records show.
