Authorities are investigating an incident in Wildwood that caused a juvenile male to be found bleeding to head and led to the arrest of a 29-year-old man who barricaded himself from police inside his bathroom.

Cape May County Prosecutor Robert L. Taylor said Wildwood officers spotted a juvenile who was bleeding from his head Thursday and they followed him to a residence on the 100 block of East Montgomery Avenue.

When officers approached a man inside the residence, they said Jacob Grant, 29, produced a knife and barricaded himself inside a bathroom. He eventually surrendered to a county SWAT team without incident, Taylor said. Grant was charged with hindering and outstanding warrants.

The juvenile male was transported to Cape Regional Hospital where he was treated and released, police said.

Police are still investigating the matter and did not state what relationship if any Grant had with the injured juvenile.
