ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - SWAT responded to a four hour long standoff situation in Anderson Township Saturday.

Anderson Township deputies responded to the situation in the 1400 block of Sutton Road at Luwista Lane. 

Deputies say the standoff started at 4:05 p.m. between Thomas Rogg, 43, and his mother.  

According to officials, Rogg threatened his mother with a butcher knife. His mother escaped uninjured.

Rogg surrendered to officials peacefully and was arrested just after 8:30 p.m. authorities said.  He will be charged with domestic violence and inducing panic.

"I think very fortunate, including him, because our first concern is quite frankly just as much for him as it is the neighbors and our officers so we're very lucky it didn't escalate to anything else," Capt. Rock Neville, of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, said. 

Officials say Rogg will undergo a mental evaluation, then will be taken to Hamilton County Jail.

SWAT on scene were using a bullhorn to help negotiate a peaceful surrender with the suspect.

Rogg will be in court Monday at 9 a.m.
