Domestic assault triggers barricade situation in Centreville

CENTREVILLE, VA. (WUSA9) - A man has been arrested in connection with a barricade situation that stemmed from a domestic assault in a Centreville home Monday afternoon, Fairfax County police said.

The incident happened around 3:30 p.m. in the 14500 block of Golden Oak Road, authorities said. 

When officers got to the scene they met 41-year-old Kevin Lamont Blyther and told him they needed to talk to the victim. Police said Blyther fled upstairs in the home. Authorities then learned that a domestic assault had happened. 

Officers tried to convince Blyther to come downstairs, however, he refused. The victim and other people inside of the home came out of the house. The victim was then treated for minor injuries. 

Officers were eventually able to take Blyther into custody. He was taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons before being taken to the Adult Detention Center, where warrants were served for domestic assault, strangulation and abduction.
