A Huron Township resident was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon after he barricaded himself inside of his house April 6 during a domestic incident involving a family member.
Police were called to the 36000 block of Willow Road at 2:24 p.m. on a domestic violence call involving a man with a knife.
When officers arrived at the house, they were told the suspect, Philip Fabinski, 60, had threatened a relative at the house with a knife.
Fabinski then barricaded himself in the basement of the house after making the threat.
Police set up a perimeter and were able to communicate with Fabinski, who surrendered over an hour later and was taken into custody without incident.
“This is a situation that had the potential to turn out quite differently. I commend our officers for their patience and professionalism. We were fortunate that no one was injured in this incident,” said Public Safety Director Everette Robbins.
Fabinski was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon,a four year felony, misdemeanor domestic assault, and second offense notice.
He is being held in the Wayne County Jail on a $20,000, 10% bond.
