TOWN OF SULLIVAN — An adult male was taken into custody for medical treatment following suicidal threats on Monday, according to law enforcement officials.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office said they received reports of a potentially suicidal man on Canaseraga Road at about 12:26 p.m. Monday. Deputies said the man was parked in his vehicle on private property, near the railroad tracks.
When deputies called the man’s cell phone and tried to talk to him, they said he fled into a nearby wooded area. Deputies continued talking to the man and convinced him to come out of the woods without harming himself. He was taken to a local medical facility for treatment.
