SYLVANIA, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A man has been arrested after trespassing on school property Monday.

Around 4:30 p.m., Charles Lambert, 48, entered the Sylvania Police Division acting suspiciously, mentioning he was a student at Northview High School. When officers attempted to speak with him, he became evasive and left the police station. 

A short time later, Lambert was located at Northview High School and was questioned by officers regarding his intent at the school. Police say Lambert would not cooperate when directed to speak with school staff or leave. When officers attempted to detain him to verify his intentions, Lambert began to physically resist, which resulted in police tasing him. After a struggle with officers, he was taken into custody and immediately evaluated by EMS personnel.

Lambert was transported to a Sylvania hospital for evaluation, which is standard protocol under the Sylvania Police Division Taser policy. After being medically cleared, he was then transported to the Lucas County Jail just after 7:15 p.m. 

One officer suffered a broken finger during the incident. He was treated at the Sylvania hospital and released.

Lambert faces charges of assault, resisting arrest, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.

Residents are concerned over the incident.

"It scares me a lot. And everyday you hear things. And you know, I love Sylvania and it seems very safe, and we have got to try very hard to keep it that way," said Pennie Sack, a Sylvania resident.

Laura Laumann agreed.

"You don't think of things happening in a small town like this. Maybe in a larger town, but not Sylvania," said Laumann.

Northview High School posted an update on its Facebook page. According to the post, students were told to stay inside areas that were secure as a precautionary measure, while Lambert walked through the building.

Sylvania Superintendent, Brad Rieger, says during the day the front doors are locked, but after school, doors remain open for students going to after-school activities inside the building.

"Most of the doors are locked. We have certain doors that are kept open to allow athletes and participants, parents, and community groups to get to the locations of the building they need to go to," explained Rieger.

So what's the next step for Sylvania schools?

"Any time an incident happens, we also review our protocols, but again, we are going to balance and do prudent security measures, but at the same time, we are not going to be paralyzed by fear and the "what ifs" and everything else," said Rieger.
