WACO, Texas (KWTX) Police closed down a portion of Sanger Avenue Monday afternoon near Crestview Elementary School in Waco after a domestic disturbance led to a standoff.

Few details were immediately released, but police Officer Garen Bynum advised motorists to avoid the area of New Road and Sanger Avenue.

SWAT officers were present at the apartment complex on Sanger between New Road and North Valley Mills Drive to which police responded after receiving a report of a disturbance and possible assault involving a man and a woman, Bynum said.

“Due to previous incidents with the individual they are treating it carefully,” he said in an email.

A man was arrested at the home for violating a protective order Bynum later said.
