A man was arrested early Monday following a standoff at a home in Blaine, police said.

Police officers and an Anoka County SWAT team surrounded a residence on the 3300 block of 90th Avenue NE. after they were called there on a report of a domestic assault with a knife about 3:30 a.m., said Blaine Police Chief Brian Podany.

Officers entered the residence about 7:45 a.m. and took a man into custody, he said.

Everyone inside the residence was able to get out while the suspect remained inside as authorities attempted to negotiate with him.

As a precaution, a handful of residents living near the scene were evacuated and offered shelter in a Metro Transit bus, Podany said.

Several streets in the area were blocked off during the four-hour standoff.
