Cedar County Deputies Arrest Stanwood Man After Standoff

STANWOOD, Iowa - Cedar County Sheriff Warren Wethington says deputies responded around 1:15 Monday morning for a report of a domestic assault. They arrived to find a man in the basement of a home on Broadway street.

Sheriff Wethington says deputies helped get five others inside the home to safety before backing away. "We got them out of there before it came to [a hostage situation]," he said.

About 30 minutes later, the subject came out of the home with a loaded .45 caliber handgun. Deputies arrested him and the sheriff says he will be charged with domestic abuse.
