MANCHESTER - Manchester police responded to a domestic assault in progress, which ultimately led to the three-hour standoff on Thursday.
Police arrived at 153 Dave St. after reports of a domestic disturbance.
Officers made contact with two individuals, but suspect Alame Simwerayi, 24, ignored a request to exit the home.
Simwerayi's 29-year-old sister, 3-year-old nephew, mother and grandmother were inside of the home. A 30-year old handicapped woman was also in the home at the time of the incident.
Police were able to make phone contact with Simwerayi's sister inside the home.
She warned police that Simwerayi had broken into the home through a basement door and assaulted one of his family members with a glass bottle.
Simwerayi also threatened to kill everyone inside the home, according to Manchester police.
He barricaded the doors and would not allow anyone to leave the home.
The Manchester police deployed a SWAT team and a Bearcat vehicle to the scene.
Three family members were able to leave after an hour of being trapped inside.
The Manchester Police SWAT team ended the standoff three hours later by overpowering Simwerayi as he stood near an open door.
After a brief struggle, police took Simwerayi into custody and he was transported to police headquarters.
