Standoff ends peacefully

A seven-hour standoff in the Queensborough area of New Westminster ended peacefully Monday.

New Westminster Police were called to the area about 5 a.m.for a male uttering threats.

The man had barricaded himself inside the home and refused to come out.

Police say they believed the man was armed with a weapon, and a lengthy standoff ensued.

“Patrol officers at the initial stage made numerous attempts to communicate with this individual,” said media relations officer, Sgt.Jeff Scott,

“From phone calls to loud speakers, we tried different ways to reach out to ensure his safety.”

Early in the afternoon, the man exited the home peacefully and was arrested without incident.

The unidentified man is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday on unspecified charges.
