A man has been arrested after a 5 1/2 hour standoff in Saskatoon.
Shortly before 3:30 a.m., police were called to a home in the 800 block of 33rd Street West after a man was being held by a 26 year old man, who had barricaded himself in the home. The victim was able to escape unharmed, but the suspect continued to stay in the home while members of police's Tactical and Patrol units and Crisis Negotiators attempted to convince the man to leave the home. Just after 9 a.m., the man came out of the home and was arrested without incident. He is facing charges of assault and unlawful confinement, with additional weapon charges likely.
