Police in St. Catharines say they arrested a 33-year-old man on Sunday afternoon following a standoff at a home on Old Pine Trail.
Niagara Regional Police say they got a call around 11 a.m. Sunday reporting an incident on Old Pine Trail near Vine Street.
Upon arrival, police say officers determined a man had forced his way into the residence and was threatening a woman inside.
The man then barricaded himself in the house after the woman was able to escape the home, according to police.
After a standoff that lasted just over five hours, negotiators and the emergency task unit were able to end the incident peacefully and take the man into custody at around 4:20 p.m.
Investigators say the man remains in custody.
He’s facing charges connected to forcible entry, resisting arrest, and mischief under $5000.
