Man in custody following hours-long standoff with police
MESA, Ariz. (KSAZ) - A man was taken into custody after an hours-long standoff with police over the weekend.
The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says the standoff began when deputies responded to reports of domestic violence at a home near Crismon and University.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they found 22-year-old Jason Talavera inside the home with a young child, but Talavera refused to come out of the home.
After Talavera threatened to hurt the child, deputies moved in and took him into custody.
The child was removed safely from the home and was not injured.
The investigation is ongoing by MCSO.
