WESTLAKE-A 33-year-old man is in police custody after a standoff situation.

It happened around 3 a.m. Saturday at a Wyndgate CT home.

Officers were able to remove the suspect's brother and his sister from the home safely. Boyd's mother was afraid and locked herself in the bathroom during the incident.
