A police standoff in Easton came to an end Monday morning when a suspect was taken into custody.

A post on the town's Facebook page said there was no longer a public safety concern on Old Foundry Street.

Investigators said the standoff stemmed from a domestic assault in North Attleborough.

Anthony Tatarouns of Mansfield was charged with assault and battery on a family or household member, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, defacing property, witness intimidation and strangulation or suffocation.

According to the police report, Tatarouns began punching the victim while in the passenger seat of a car Sunday evening. The victim told police Tatarouns grabbed the steering wheel and tried to crash the car. Tatarouns later strangled and kicked the victim, police said.

Police also arrested Jordan Creech of Boston on an outstanding warrant. Police said several others were also inside the house.

Police from several towns and the SWAT team sent a robot into the home and used stun grenades to "get the attention" of those inside, Easton Police Chief Gary Sullivan said.

A K-9 sniffed for weapons on the property.

Tatarouns was held without bail at Attleborough District Court.

A dangerousness hearing is set for Oct. 20.
