(SEYMOUR) - A Seymour man is facing domestic battery charges and potentially other charges after a report of a fight Thursday morning turned into a standoff with police.

32-year-old Martin Diego Juan was arrested after a nearly one-hour standoff that ended with the Seymour Police Department's SWAT team entering the apartment at 1041 Katherine Court.

At 8:50 a.m., police were called after someone reported seeing an injured man carrying a knife fighting with an injured woman in the area of 950 E. Oak Street. Juan allegedly battered a woman and then barricaded himself in an apartment with a 4-year-old child.

Juan did not respond to repeated attempts by police to contact him including through an interpreter. Fearing for the safety of the child, police say that the SWAT team broke into the apartment, securing the child and another man, who was later released. The child was uninjured and returned to his mother.

Juan was arrested and taken first to the hospital for injuries he suffered during the incident, and then to the jail. He is facing a preliminary felony charge of domestic battery.
