A call to Davenport police about a domestic disturbance last night resulted in a standoff. It started a little after 6:30 and lasted 3 1/2 hours. When police arrived at a house in the 1500 block of West 16th Street, they a 48-year-old Davenport man went back into inside and barricaded himself.
The man, whose name has not been released, was alone in the house. Not knowing if he was armed, cops blocked off streets around the house as the SWAT team surrounded it. The man’s father and brother came to the scene and worked with police negotiators. The man surrendered peacefully a little after 10 P.M..
Police say charges against the man are pending.
