SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Salem police say they’ve arrested a 19-year-old man following a six-hour standoff.

Officers went looking for Jeremy Russell Dunham at a home Saturday evening as they investigated a report from the previous day that someone had been menaced with a weapon. Police determined he was in the home, and that there were weapons inside, but they say he refused to come outside or speak with officers.

Salem police say a SWAT team was brought to the scene by about 9 p.m. Saturday, and they entered the home just before 2 a.m. Sunday. A police dog found Dunham hiding under a stairwell.

He was treated for a dog bite at Salem Hospital before his transfer to the Marion County Jail.

He was charged with menacing with a weapon, possession of methamphetamines, initiating a false report, and interfering with a police dog.
