Police took a 22-year-old Lawrence man into custody Tuesday night after a nearly two-hour standoff outside a mobile home in the 3300 block of Iowa Street. The man in custody is alleged to have threatened a police officer with a gun.
Lawrence Police Department officers surrounded the trailer at approximately 7:30 p.m. Police officers on the scene told police dispatchers they saw a woman wearing a pink shirt inside the trailer with the man. They heard her screaming, telling the man not to do something.
Shortly after 8 p.m., a police officer told dispatchers that the woman had come out of the residence unharmed.
The man was taken into custody shortly before 9:30 p.m., according to Sgt. Matt Sarna, a Lawrence police spokesman. He said the incident had stemmed from a domestic disturbance from inside the home earlier in the night. Sarna said no one was injured.
The man is being held on suspicion of domestic battery and aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
The Journal-World generally does not name suspects unless they are formally charged.
