Suspect in custody after SWAT standoff in SE Houston

HOUSTON - A man was taken into custody after barricading himself inside an apartment with his child and family member in southeast Houston on Tuesday evening. 

According to the Houston Police Department, the standoff stemmed from a family violence assault on Monday night.

Police said it continued into an incident Tuesday morning where a man tried to run over the mother of his child while she tried to kiss their child goodbye. 

The suspect also threatened to harm the child before leaving with the child in the car, police said. The suspect later returned to the apartment with the child. 

Police said the mother of the child did report the assault to Pasadena police. The suspect had three, open felony warrants. 

Special Weapons And Tactics (SWAT) and Hostage Negotiation Teams (HNT) were called to respond to the scene in the 9400 block of Grannis Street.

Eventually, authorities had to force there way into the apartment. The suspect was arrested without incident and no injuries were reported.
