Suspect prompts Arlington police standoff

Posted: Updated:

Authorities attempting to serve a felony warrant in Arlington were involved in a standoff with the suspect for about five hours on Monday.

According to Arlington police representative Tiara Ellis Richard, 43-year-old Pervis Lee Andrews holed up in a house in the 500 block of Matt Lane.

Sgt. Chris Cook said he was wanted for aggravated assault related to a family violence case.

Andrews, whom Cook said has a criminal record, surrendered peacefully to authorities around 2:30 p.m.

Cook said a woman who was removed from the home helped police and US marshals negotiate with the man.

Andrews is now being held in the Arlington City Jail on a $10,899 bond for a felony assault and additional misdemeanor charges.
