CUMMING, Ga. — A man armed with a rake and a knife banged on the doors of a hotel and yelled for drugs, according to a Cumming Police incident report.

At about 7 a.m. July 28, officers were dispatched to the Sun Suites extended-stay hotel, 555 Lake Center Parkway, because of a man disrupting guests.

When officers arrived, the man was in the parking lot holding a garden rake and a knife. Officers told the man to put down his weapons, but he continued to wave them in the air and yell.

The man eventually put down the weapons and got on the ground. Officers said the man kept asking officers to shoot him.

Officers took the man to the City of Cumming Jail, but he was later transported to Northside Hospital Forsyth for drug and behavior treatment.

At about 2:30 p.m., officers were sent back to the hotel because the man had returned to his room. He was asked to take his belongings and not to return.
