Man arrested after standoff with Ludlow police

Hampden County

LUDLOW, Mass. (WWLP) – A man has been arrested, after Ludlow police say he barricaded himself inside a home, following a report of a domestic incident early Friday morning.

Ludlow Police Lieutenant Daniel Valadas told 22News the department’s tactical team was called-in to deal with the situation at 162 Center Street. State troopers and officers from Chicopee and Amherst were also called-in to assist.

Valadas said that officers were called to the home for a report of a domestic assault and battery shortly before 3:00 A.M. He said the victim was found outside, while the suspect had locked himself in and refused to surrender to police.

Police ultimately entered the home shortly after 5:00 A.M., at which time the suspect finally surrendered, and was taken into custody.

His name is not being released at this time, Valadas said, due to the fact that the charges are domestic in nature. Valadas did say, however, that the suspect is a 37 year-old Ludlow resident. He will be arraigned Friday morning in Palmer District Court.

Center Street was closed between West Avenue and Hubbard Street while police dealt with the situation, but the roadway was re-opened by 5:30 A.M.
