A Wichita Police Officer was assaulted while conducting a follow-up investigation on abandoned vehicles.

It happened Wednesday afternoon in the 1,500 block of north Topeka.  A man, 51, became agitated and went into a home and brought out a firearm.

The man came out of the residence and pointed the firearm at the officer, who took cover, and waited for additional officers to arrive.

The situation was resolved without shots being fired.  After officers surrounded the home, the suspect surrendered without incident.
