Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey and Chief Michael E. Lloyd of the Monroe Township Police Department said a team of law enforcement officers successfully resolved a potentially dangerous situation by convincing an apparently distraught man to surrender following an incident at a home in the township today.
No charges have been filed, but the man, whose identity is being withheld, is in custody pending the outcome of an investigation.
A woman who was located on a second floor of the home was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, where she was being treated for a head injury.
More than 20 law enforcement officers from the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Special Operations Response Team (SORT) were dispatched shortly after police were called at 9:34 a.m.
The man surrendered at 12:55 p.m. following negotiations with SORT.
No shots were fired during the incident and no police officers were injured.
The incident is being investigated by the Monroe Township Police Department.
