BALTIMORE, Md. — Frantic and sweating, the man pounded on doors and pleaded for help, telling residents on Aisquith Street that someone was chasing him, according to witnesses.

At one rowhouse, occupants said, the man kicked in a back door, dashed upstairs and into a bedroom and barricaded himself in with a 16-year-old boy. Within minutes, the youth's quick-acting older brother and a neighbor pulled him to safety.
 
Members of the Baltimore police SWAT team tried to calm the man down, but he was agitated and "acting very erratically," and was possibly under the influence of drugs, said spokesman Matt Jablow.
