Police in Eden Prairie engaged in a 12-hour standoff on Saturday, only for it to turn out the suspect had already left.

There was a major response to the report of domestic assault at a house in the 16000 block of South Shore Lane at 8:45 a.m. Saturday.

SWAT teams from Eden Prairie, Hopkins, Edina, St. Louis Park and Minnetonka were called to the house, with a perimeter set up by police who believed the 31-year-old suspect was still inside the home.

But he wasn't, and at 8:53 p.m. the suspect was found and arrested in Plymouth.

Eden Prairie PD then said that other local residents were able to come and go as they pleased, as officers shut the perimeter down.

"Eden Prairie Police would like to thank residents in the neighborhood surrounding this incident, some of whom were asked to shelter in place for several hours on Saturday – your patience and vigilance were appreciated as we worked to safely bring this call to a close," a statement from the department said.
