Weekend Standoff in Holyrood

A 60-year-old man has been arrested following an incident over the weekend.

RCMP responded to a report of an assault on Saturday.

When police arrived the suspect had barricaded himself inside the home.

It took nearly four hours for officers to talk the man down and he exited the home and was arrested without incident.

He now faces assault charges, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, and damage to property.
