Armed standoff ends peacefully

ERT surround a home in the 12100-block 66 Avenue

A man has been arrested after an armed standoff in Newton that lasted four hours.

Police responded to a call for help after a woman was allegedly chased down the street by a man with a machete.

She was unharmed, but the 32-year-old Surrey man ran back into his house in the 12100-block of 66 Avenue and barricaded the door.

Police believed he may have also had access to a firearm, so with an abundance of caution, they waited, while trying to talk him out of the house.

At about 5 p.m., the man came out, and was arrested. Several charges are being considered.

Police say his dispute with the woman was over money.

No one was harmed in the incident.
