HAMILTON, OH (FOX19)- A SWAT stand off involving a Hamilton man ended with an arrest Saturday.

Hamilton police responded to a home in the 1500 block of Brookcrest Dr. on the west side of town around 8:30 p.m. on reports the suspect, John Robson, had made threats to kill two people and himself.

Robson claimed to have a gun, and wouldn't open the door when officers arrived.

The Hamilton-Fairfield SWAT team responded, while negotiators tried to make contact with Robson by phone and loudspeaker.  They got no response.

SWAT officers stormed into the house at about 11:30 p.m., and arrested Robson without any injuries.

Robson was charged with two counts of aggravated menacing as well as inducing panic.
