Authorities arrested a 41-year-old man after a barricade situation Monday night that ended safely in Fairfax County.
Kevin Lamont Blyther at first refused to follow orders to surrender and was taken into custody around 9:15 p.m., Fairfax County Police said. He was taken to a hospital and then was expected to be taken to a jail. He faces warrants for domestic assault, abduction and strangulation.
Police said Blyther was involved in a long standoff that happened Monday in the 14500 block of Golden Oak Road in Centreville. It started as a domestic assault and a woman was treated for minor injuries at the scene, police said.
She and others in the house left safely, but Blyther refused to come out, according to police. The area was surrounded by law enforcement for about six hours.
Finally, police confronted Blyther. It was not clear how he was related to those inside the home.
