TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Police are still searching for a man who barricaded himself inside a home for hours near Speedway and Tucson boulevards.

Tucson police blocked off the area Monday while they investigated a report of domestic violence.

A woman called authorities to report two men broke into her midtown home. TPD Sgt. Chris Widmer said it started as a domestic violence issue. He said one man is in custody, the woman is safe, but the other suspect barricaded himself in the home and was not responding to police.

TPD called a SWAT team to the area because they said they believed the suspect was armed.

Police threw a flashbang at the door of the midtown home and made their way inside the house.
