ROCKY HILL, Conn. (WFSB) - Rocky Hill Police were on scene at a barricaded apartment at 100 West Street.

Police say that they received a call of a domestic violence disturbance around 2 p.m. from family members reporting they had been assaulted by their son.

“ I believe a couple of them are going to the hospital on their own and they were evaluated by our medical response and they decline care but they do have some injuries so they are going to get checked out on their own,” said Rocky Hill Police Sgt. Jeffrey Foss-Rugan.

When police arrived, they found victims who had injuries.

At that time law enforcement did not know if he had a weapon, but out of precaution, they did evacuate some of the area.

They now know he did not have a weapon.

“There was no indication he wanted to harm himself. He did make a few statements that were concerning, so we just wanted to make sure that he was safe and everyone around him was safe so it was a peaceful resolution,” said Foss-Rugan.

With help from the Capital Region Emergency Services Tactical Team (CREST), the suspect was taken into custody without any further incidents.

Police say it is safe for residents to return.
