FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – A standoff between police and a domestic violence suspect is underway at a home in the Tower District on Saturday night.

Around 2:30 p.m., Fresno police officers were called out to a home near Dudley Avenue and Elizabeth Street after it was reported that a woman might be involved in a domestic violence-related incident with her boyfriend.

A short time later, officials say someone else had called 911 with more details about a 22-year-old man at the home threatening to hurt his girlfriend and their 5-year-old child.

When officers arrived, they reportedly learned the man was possibly armed and had continued to threaten his girlfriend over the phone.
