Background (on June 5, 2010):

EPS officers have arrested a 25-year-old male who barricaded himself inside a townhouse for several hours today.

Police received a call at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 5, 2010 about a male suspect who was allegedly uttering threats against a woman. The woman was also allegedly assaulted. Initial investigations revealed the incident stemmed from a domestic dispute.
