A domestic incident that resulted in a three hour standoff between the suspect and Delaware State Police Tuesday morning ended peacefully.
Police were called to a home on Willow Grove Road just after 9 a.m. to check on the welfare of a juvenile female. When officers arrived, they learned that the child had been physically assaulted by an adult male family member during an argument.
Police then determined that the suspect was armed and intoxicated and had locked himself in a bedroom. The child was removed from the home and negotiations with the man began. He finally came out of the bedroom and was taken to Kent General Hospital for an evaluation.
The man’s name will be released once he is formally charged and arraigned.
