HOUSTON - A man may face domestic abuse charges after he was taken into custody following a SWAT standoff Wednesday in northeast Houston.

Authorities responded to a call around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday about a person barricaded inside a home in the 11300 block of Raincove Drive.

Police say they initially received a text from 911 that someone inside the home may be hurt. A supervisor arrived on scene and spotted the suspect inside the home. According to officials, the suspect came to a window and shouted profanities at the officer.

After several hours of trying to make contact with the suspect, SWAT was able to breach the door and take the suspect into custody.

Officials say the suspect's wife and two children were inside the home during the incident. A teenage boy was taken to the hospital as a precaution. No other injuries were reported.
