VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — A man in Virginia has been arrested after barricading himself and a woman inside a home, initiating a standoff with police.

Thirty-seven-year-old Tyrone Rodney Thompson is charged with third offense domestic assault. The woman was not injured.

WAVY-TV cites a Virginia Beach Police Department news release that says officers arrived at a Virginia Beach home at about 10 p.m. Sunday. The outlet reports that officers were unable to contact the home’s occupants and so established a perimeter and called in the department’s SWAT team.

The standoff ended early Monday morning when Thompson exited the home without incident and was taken into custody.

The investigation is ongoing.
