OMAHA, Nebraska — Authorities say a man has surrendered without incident after a standoff with Omaha officers.

Omaha television station KETV reports ( ) that officers were first sent to the north-central Omaha home around 1 a.m. Tuesday to check a call about domestic violence. A woman had run from the home to a neighbor's house, leaving behind the man and a 2-year-old child.

A SWAT team was called in to handle the possible hostage situation, and officers used a bullhorn and cellphone in trying to persuade the man to come outside.

He was arrested after leaving the home. His name hasn't been released.
