Reported domestic assault leads to 5-hour standoff in Blaine

A man was inside a house with a child during the standoff.

A man surrendered to police after approximately five hours of negotiations following an alleged domestic assault Monday in Blaine. 

Blaine police were dispatched to a residence on the 9100 block of Tippecanoe Street Northeast around 3 p.m. after a woman called 911 reporting that a man was threatening her with a knife. The woman got one of her children out of the residence, but the man was still inside with a second child. 

Police, on the belief that the man may have been in possession of a gun, chose not to approach the door. The man also didn't have a phone inside, so police evacuated neighbors and called in the Anoka County SWAT team, a negotiator from the Anoka County Sheriff's Office and a translator from St. Paul Police Department. 

The negotiator communicated with the man over a public address system, with the man leaving the house with the child without incident around 8 p.m. The child was safe and the man was arrested. 

Police have recommended charges of second-degree domestic assault and felony strangulation be filed by the Anoka County Attorney's Office. 

If you know anyone who is affected by domestic violence, you can find more information on services available here, via the Minnesota DPS.

You can also call the Day One Crisis Hotline at 1-866-223-1111.
