Police in Berkeley say that a domestic disturbance led to the arrest of two people on suspicion of assault in what is being considered a minor standoff situation.
Police Lt. Cynthia Harris said that officers responded to the 2300 block of Ninth Street at about 5:30 a.m. Monday to investigate reports of an argument between a man and a woman.
When officers arrived the man barricaded himself inside the house, Harris said.
A neighbor told police that the suspect had several firearms inside the house, but the suspect did not threaten to shoot anyone, Harris said.
The 52-year-old suspect surrendered to police at about 6:45 without incident. He and the woman, who is 48, were taken into custody and booked on assault charges, Harris said.
