Norwalk police arrested a man who they said threatened his family and barricaded himself in his home on Thursday.
Police received a 911 call just before 10:30 p.m. about a man who barricaded himself in a bedroom on Bonnybrook Road and might have a gun, police said.
Based on the 911 call, police determined that Richard Dipasquale, 54, threatened to kill the family during an argument with his wife, went into a bedroom and placed furniture in front of the door so no one could enter, police said.
Police went into the home and DiPasquale surrendered. He was then brought to Norwalk Hospital to be evaluated, police said.
DiPasquale was charged with threatening and breach of peace.
He was released at the hospital on a promise to appear and was due in court date on Friday.
