A man from Torrington is facing a number of charges after a standoff and police scuffle put a school on lockdown.
Police responded Tuesday morning to a call about a man cutting himself in Alvord Park.
When police arrived, they found Austin Cyr wielding a box cutter and threatening to attack police.
Cyr wound up in the parking lot of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, prompting the school to go into lockdown.
