An Omaha man is behind bars in Council Bluffs following a home home invasion. 

Council Bluffs Police say officers had been attempting to locate 27 year old Joshua McCoy on Thursday for charges of criminal mischief and a protection order violation on warrants out of Nebraska. 

At 2:30 Thursday afternoon, McCoy was located hiding inside of an apartment he had just forced entry into. McCoy refused to comply with orders to come out and was found to be armed with a hammer. Police discharged one bean bag round, striking McCoy. He ultimately surrendered without further confrontation just after 3:30.

He faces a number of charges including Fugitive from Justice for the Nebraska warrant, Third Degree Burglary, Second Degree Criminal Mischief, First Degree Harassment, Violation of a Protection Order and Interference with Official Acts.
