A police standoff in Grand Junction on Orchard Avenue ended peacefully Sunday night.
Police initially responded to a domestic violence call on Bookcliff Avenue. This was the second such call of the day that officers responded to at the address.
Once police arrived, the suspect had already fled the scene.
Officers then located Dustin Grider, 35, at a home on the1600 block of Orchard Avenue. Police say he had forced his way inside.
The residents of the home were not there and Grider repeatedly refused to come out. City cops then set up a perimeter around the house and used the 'Reverse 911' emergency notification system to warn other neighbors in the area.
Due to the potential of weapons being accessible to Grider, the S.W.A.T. team was called and deployed around the house.
Orchard Avenue was closed for about three hours, police say, before the suspect surrendered peacefully.
Grider was arrested on 3rd Degree Assault, 2nd Degree Burglary, 2nd Degree Criminal Tampering and Criminal Mischief charges. He was later booked into the Mesa County Jail.
