The Battle Creek Police Emergency Response Team was deployed following a stand-off with police.
A man is behind bars after a nearly three-hour stand-off with Battle Creek police on Monday, September 27, 2021. Officers with the Battle Creek Police Department were called at approximately 7:40 p.m. to the area of Fremont Street and Calhoun Street for a reported felonious assault.
Once on scene, police say a man at the home refused to exit. The Battle Creek Police Department Emergency Response Team was then called and the home was surrounded.

A woman that was in the home was sent to an area hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The man was arrested on a felony assault charge just before 10:00 p.m. after coming out of a house.
The man was then lodged at the Calhoun County Jail.
