SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Just after one 'o clock Wednesday morning, police were called to a reported disturbance in the Greenville neighborhood around the 100 block of Helen and Alice streets.

Police spokesman Chad Sheehan says officers searched the area and found the suspect in the home and armed with a handgun.

Sheehan says when police first made contact, there were other people in the house.

They were later let go, but the man stayed inside.

After hours without communication, SWAT team members broke out some windows and took the man into custody.

"The suspect is in custody, around I believe, it was about 10 a.m. by SWAT team members. It was resolved peacefully, there were no shots fired or anything of that nature. The suspect is uninjured and no officers were injured in the incident," Officer Chad Sheehan said.

No shots were fired, but police say noise making tools were used to get the attention of the suspect.

The man's name has not been released.

He is currently being evaluated at a local hospital.

Charges are expected to be filed later this week.
