Graphic video: Knife-wielding man leads police on pursuit

The man was caught attempting to burglarize a home in broad daylight

DENVER — A man wielding a knife leads police on a chase through Capitol Hill including the property of the Governor's Mansion after a botched burglary attempt.

Police say a man tried to steal items from a garage near the intersection of 8th Avenue and Pearl Street when the homeowner caught him in the act. The State Patrol says security noticed right away and placed the entire Governor's residence in lockdown. The only people inside the residence at the time were a tour group.

After leading police chase in a four block loop, the man ended up on a second floor balcony with holding police at bay momentarily with a knife.  After about 15 minutes, police officers convinced the man to give up peacefully.
