On its Facebook pace, KOB in Albuquerque apologized for the delay. Just before 10 p.m., a man began pounding on the front door of the station. Officials called the police, but in the meantime the man gained access to the lot located behind the station, KOB reported.

The man then began hitting the back door. The telecast was delayed until the members of the Albuquerque Police Department arrived and took the man into custody, the station said.

We apologize for the delay, but a man that was attempting to break into the station forced us to push the newscast back. The man is now in custody.
