Brunswick police briefly surrounded a house Tuesday after receiving a call for a domestic dispute, according to Brunswick Police Chief Milt Frech.
A man called police to a house in the 600 block of Brunswick Street shortly before noon, saying he entered the house and was threatened with a gun by an older man. Frech said the younger man lived at the house recently, but also stays at another address. When he found himself unable to get inside the house, the younger man forced his way in, Frech said.
"The other guy’s upstairs sleeping, hears the ruckus, makes his way downstairs not knowing what’s going on, sees the [younger man] and they have words," Frech said.
When police showed up, the older man was still inside and did not immediately come outside when police asked. Believing the man was armed with a gun, Brunswick officers surrounded the home and called in backup from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.
The man eventually came out of the house peacefully, Frech said. The man told police he came downstairs holding a knife and denied having a gun, which was later confirmed when police searched the house with permission from the homeowners. As of Tuesday, no arrests were made and charges were not likely to be filed, Frech said.
