CLEVELAND -- A man has been taken into custody following a brief standoff during which the suspect barricaded himself inside a house with five children.

Police were called to the house in the 1700 block of W. 52nd Street for a domestic argument. The woman at the address told police the man she was arguing with was inside the house with the children. The man refused to leave or allow officers inside.

S.W.A.T. responded to the scene and a short time later the man was taken into custody without incident. The children were not harmed and released to relatives at the scene.

Charges are pending in the case.
