      Police release details on 15-hour standoff

      Details have been released regarding a standoff that took place in the afternoon and overnight hours on Monday, resulting in the arrest of a 33-year-old Ishpeming man.

      According to the Ishpeming Police Department, a call was received from a woman claiming that her boyfriend had entered the house without permission and assaulted her. She added that he allegedly made comments about killing people and had been drinking.

      Police responded to the scene at around 11 a.m. and were advised that there were several guns in the home and the suspect may be suffering from PTSD.

      The woman was removed from the home, but police were unable to make contact with the 33-year-old man inside. Police report that a perimeter was established around the home and the State Police Emergency Support Team was requested. A warrant was then received for the man on a first degree home invasion charge, according to police.

      The Ishpeming Police Department reports that the EST members were in an annual training event in Dundee Michigan and had to be flown to the Upper Peninsula. An armored vehicle also traveled 750 miles to respond to the scene, according to the police department.

      The suspect came out of the residence and surrendered upon the arrival of the police and armored vehicle shortly after 2 a.m., according to officials. He was lodged in the Marquette County Jail on a $10,000 bond for a charge of first degree home invasion.

      He is scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday in Ishpeming District Court. His name is not being released until formal arraignment.
