KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City, Missouri, police arrested a man Tuesday morning after he barricaded himself in a home with a weapon.
Officers received a call around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday about a disturbance at a house in the NE 4100 block of North Mersington. When they arrived, a woman told them she had been assaulted. The suspect inside the house refused to come out, and when officers realized he was armed with a weapon, they backed away.

Officers arrested the suspect shortly after that. Police have not released his name but said he will face charges for the incident.
