Update On Ishpeming Police Standoff
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A Marquette County man is scheduled to be arraigned later today after being arrested on felony home invasion charges following a standoff with police in Ishpeming.
The incident was reported just after 11:00 a.m. Monday, when a woman left a residence on the 1800 block of Hewitt Street and told police her boyfriend entered her home without her permission and assaulted her.
She also said he had been drinking and said he was going to kill people and he may have been suffering from PTSD.
Police surrounded the residence and secured a warrant for the man’s arrest for first degree home invasion.
After additional backup from the State Police Emergency Services Team arrived, the suspect surrendered early yesterday after seeing the armored vehicle that Troopers had on scene.
The suspect was only identified as a 33-year-old Ishpeming man and was lodged in the Marquette County jail on the home invasion charge, which is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
The man will be arraigned in Ishpeming District Court.
