BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A 57-year-old man was arrested and is now facing numerous charges following an hours-long standoff with police.

Officers were called to the first block of Seivour Avenue around 4 p.m. Saturday in regards to an harassment complaint.

When officers arrived, the suspect was standing on his front porch but when they tried to make contact he went back into the home.

Police say he was believed to have been armed so they brought in the Battle Creek Emergency Response Team to negotiate him out of the house.

After four hours, the suspect surrendered to police.

The suspect is now facing numerous charges and is expected to be arraigned as early as Tuesday.
