Second standoff in Moorhead in a week results in arrest
MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — A man is in custody following a standoff with police in Moorhead that prompted the evacuation of an apartment building.
Officers responded to a reported domestic assault on Sunday morning and backed off when they saw the man had a handgun. The woman involved had been able to escape through a window before they arrived.
The Red River Valley SWAT Team and the Minnesota State Patrol also responded. A police negotiator convinced the suspect to surrender peacefully more than two hours later.
It was the second standoff in the city in a week. A 35-year-old man allegedly involved in a domestic assault situation Tuesday was arrested after a nine-hour standoff.
