There were no injuries after a nearly four-hour standoff with Apple Valley police at a residence Monday.
Apple Valley officers were dispatched at 7:29 a.m. July 6 to a residence in the 7800 block of Glenda Court for a domestic assault report.
A female caller said a male in the home was threatening to shoot her and reported the male was known to have weapons. She said she believed her life was in danger so she fled the residence, the department said in a news release.
The woman’s 13-year-old son and 18-month-old twins were still in the home with the male.
“Officers de-escalated and negotiated with the subject to release the children. The children were ultimately left in the home and the male was allowed to leave. Officers verified the children were uninjured and they were reunited with their mother,” the release said.
Apple Valley Police Capt. Nick Francis said the male left the residence at 11:47 a.m.
"The male was known to the female as they have a child in common," he said.
The investigation into the incident remains active. The department will pursue an arrest warrant at the end of the investigation, police said.
