Using patience, tactics and communication, Everett Police brought a domestic violence situation to a peaceful end Monday night. About 7:30PM officers were called to an apartment in the 2600 block of Rockefeller Avenue. A woman reported to police that she had been assaulted and was now locked out of her apartment but her two month old baby was still inside with the man who she said hurt her.

Officers tried to talk to the man and get him to come out with the baby. The man refused to come out or bring the baby out so officers could check the child’s welfare. Additional officers were called and the apartment building was surrounded by police. They then spent the next three hours talking to the man via loudspeaker and other means.

Finally just after 10:30PM they arranged to have the child’s car seat placed on the porch so the man could put the baby inside. He did so and released the baby which was then reunited with its mother. Both were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center to be checked.

The man however stayed inside the apartment for about another 30 minutes until finally agreeing to come out. He was taken into custody without incident.
