PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) – The Portland Police Bureau says two people are in custody after an hours-long standoff in the Forest Park neighborhood Monday.

According to officials, police received a 911 dispatch around 11:30 a.m. from an elderly husband and wife who claimed two people had broken into their home in the 7000 Block of Northwest Skyline Boulevard, forcing them out.

Just before 3 p.m., PPB began asking residents to avoid the neighborhood following the activation of the Special Emergency Reaction Team and Crisis Negotiation Teams.

During the negotiation with the suspects, authorities closed Northwest Skyline Boulevard from Northwest Germantown Road to Northwest Springville Road.

PPB says after giving the suspects time to surrender, a SERT unit entered the home and took the man and woman into custody.

33-year-old Michael Mazzi was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center (MCDC) on the charges of Burglary in the First Degree and Coercion. Additionally, Mazzi had five warrants out of Clackamas County. 33-year-old Kerina Trabue was booked into MCDC on the charges of Burglary in the First Degree and Coercion. She also had a warrant out of Oregon City.

All closed roads are now reopened.
