Stand-off ends in arrest Tuesday at Alpena


ALPENA — Alpena Police Chief Michael Patterson said a man was arrested Tuesday after a stand-off with police that led to the evacuation of the nearby Alpena School.
Patterson said he was notified about 9 a.m. Tuesday of a disturbance in which two female subjects were “violently assaulted” at a residence on Hill Avenue.
Patterson said he notified the Boone County Sheriff’s Office and the Harrison Police Department’s Special Operations Team for assistance.
Neighboring residences and the school were evacuated. Patterson said there were a limited number of people at the school at the time.
Negotiators were able to make contact with the man by phone and after a few hours he exited the house without any officers having to make entry.
“He was arrested without incident,” Patterson said.
Patterson declined to identify the man who was arrested. He said he plans to file for charges of two counts each terroristic threatening, a Class A felony, and second-degree domestic battery, a Class D felony.
