PORTLAND, Tenn. (WKRN) — An hours-long SWAT situation in a residential area of Portland ended early Thursday morning with an assault suspect in custody.
According to Portland police, there was a domestic assault involving two family members inside of a home on Bennett Street. When officers arrived, they said the suspect barricaded himself inside of the residence with a knife.
The suspect, later identified as 42-year-old Glynn Mooneyhan, refused to exit the home, so police said the SWAT team was called out. A gas agent was then deployed into the residence and Mooneyhan surrendered just before 6:30 a.m., according to Porland police.
Police said Mooneyhan was transported to the Sumner County jail on charges of aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
