Knoxville (WVLT) - A man is facing aggravated assault charges after a short standoff with police.
Police say just after 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning, officers went to a home on Brice Street in East Knoxville to a call of a domestic dispute.
Officers say when they arrived, they could see a pregnant woman against the wall inside the home.
Investigators say a man shut the door to the home before they could get inside.
Negotiators were called in to talk to the suspect.
After about an hour and a half, the woman eventually opened the door and came outside.
The man, whose name is not being released, was taken into custody without incident.
The woman was not hurt.
