The Larimer SWAT Team was called to a home in Wellington on Wednesday after a man barricaded himself in the home for nearly five hours.
The original call to dispatch came from a woman who said a man was trying to force his way into her bedroom. As deputies were on the way, the man kicked open the bedroom door, started swinging his bat at the woman and began destroying property in the home.
The woman was able to escape before deputies arrived, but it took SWAT many more hours to get the man to surrender.
The woman later told Deputies that she was living in the home with the man.
Arrested, was 45 year old Raymond A. Duffy. Duffy had two outstanding warrants for his arrest.
He was booked into the Larimer County Jail on allegations of 1st Degree Burglary, Manacing, 2 counts of Violation of Bail Bond Conditions, Failure to Appear / DUI, and Failure to Comply with DWAI.
There were no known injuries in the incident.
