2 men arrested after home standoff in St. Charles County

Posted: Updated:

(KMOV.com) – Police arrested two suspects after a brief police standoff in St. Charles County Saturday afternoon.

Officers with the St. Charles County Police Department were called to a home in the 5300 block of Enchanted Court around 12:30 p.m. to help resolve a family dispute. Upon arriving at the scene, officers attempted to enter the home, but one of the suspects advanced toward the officers while holding a baseball bat.

Police backed away and demanded that the man drop the bat. After dropping the bat, the suspect slammed a door shut, shattering the glass and causing lacerations to the left hand of one of the officers.  The injury is nonlife threatening. He was treated and released.

During this dispute, a second suspect attempted to flee out of the home and allegedly assaulted the officers. He was taken into custody.

A SWAT team and negotiators were called because the first suspect was still inside the home. As the team arrived, the suspect bolted out the front door, leading officers on a brief foot pursuit. He was hit with a stun gun and taken into custody, then transferred to a local hospital before finally taken to the Department of Corrections
