NORTH CREEK — A domestic assault case at a home on Main Street led to a several-hour standoff that ended with the man at the center of the case eventually surrendering, police said.

The Warren County Emergency Response Team was called out around noon after police received a call about domestic violence and were told the suspect was in a home just south of Johnsburg Town Hall and refusing to cooperate with police.

Warren County Undersheriff Shawn Lamouree said the man, whose name was not immediately released, injured a woman earlier Sunday.

She was taken to Glens Falls Hospital, but Lamouree said her injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.

The man believed to be responsible refused to acknowledge police or answer his phone, and there were believed to be guns in the home, Lamouree said.

So the ERT, a special weapons and tactics team that is equipped with military-grade vehicles and weapons, responded and closed part of the road as the standoff continued for several hours.

Lamouree said the suspect eventually responded to calls from relatives and police and surrendered around 3:30 p.m.

The suspect was being questioned and was to be charged later Sunday, and police said his name would be released at that point.
