Suspect In Custody After Hours-Long Standoff In San Anselmo

SAN ANSELMO (CBS SF) –  A man who barricaded himself with a knife inside of a room in a San Anselmo home Wednesday night has been taken into custody Thursday morning after a standoff that lasted several hours, according to the Central Marin Police Authority.

The man used furniture to block the door of the room at the home in the 200 block of Butterfield Road around 11:15 p.m. Wednesday after his roommate called police alleging that the suspect vandalized his vehicle, police Lt. Mike Legan said.

Officers issued a shelter-in-place order and closed roads in the neighboring area.

The suspect's name has not been released.
