A male suspect was apprehended after an extended 8-hour face-off with law enforcement in Randolph, Massachusetts, Your Content has learned.

The individual is accused of breaking into a derelict residence at 11 Moulton St. and igniting it on three separate occasions during the standoff. The residence had been previously declared unsafe due to a fire that broke out weeks earlier.

As Your Content readers know, the Randolph police department issued a public warning about an “active situation” near Moulton Street, advising both drivers and walkers to avoid the area. The face-off commenced on Sunday evening when the suspect entered the residence, which had been previously marked as unsafe following a fire a few weeks ago.

Norfolk County authorities, stated, “Emergency services were alerted to the situation on the 10 block of Moulton Street shortly after 11:30 p.m. First responders identified a 1.5 story wood frame house fully engulfed in flames and initiated immediate defensive actions.”

Reports from the scene indicated that an individual was inside the property and refusing to exit, complicating the efforts of emergency services. The specifics concerning this barricaded individual remain unclear.
