23-year-old Milwaukee man arrested for child abuse after standoff with MPD

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Saturday afternoon around 4 p.m. Milwaukee police responded to a report of child abuse at a home near 24th Place and Hope Avenue.

When officers arrived they were threatened by someone in the house who said they would shoot the officers. The suspect had an adult girlfriend and a 3-year-old child in the car. 

Milwaukee Police negotiators made phone contact and after a lengthy conversation convinced the man to release the child and eventually surrender himself.

A 23-year-old Milwaukee man was taken into custody without incident and faces child abuse charges.
