CORNWALL – An all-day standoff with police ended Friday night with the arrest of an unidentified man at a home near First Street East and Millville Avenue.

Crisis negotiators and the Cornwall Emergency Response Team had been on the scene most of the day after a man barricaded himself inside his home.

They were concerned for the man’s well-being.

Distraction devices were used late Friday afternoon and by 6 p.m. the man was arrested without incident.

“The CPS would like to thank the public and nearby residents for their cooperation and patience as police conducted this investigation, which has now been safely resolved,” the force tweeted around 6:20 p.m.
