SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Police have released more details about an arrest made in Rose Park after a SWAT standoff on Sunday.

The suspect has been identified as a 48-year-old man, but no name has been released at this time.

Police first received a call about a domestic violence situation around 10:30 a.m. The victim, a woman, had left her home in distress and flagged down a neighbor to call for help. The woman told authorities she was being injured and threatened by her husband, the suspect. She said her husband had pointed a firearm towards herself and their daughter while making threatening statements.

When authorities arrived, they set up a perimeter around the home and called in SLCPD SWAT and crisis negotiators to the scene. The suspect did not cooperate with police commands and remained barricaded inside his residence.

After some time while using loudspeakers to communicate, the suspect exited the home and was taken into custody. Detectives are still investigating the situation and are speaking to witnesses.

ABC4 will update this story if more information becomes available.
