Police arrested 34-year-old Kent McKnight on felony domestic violence charges following the incident on the 3500 block of Tulane NE near Comanche Road and Carlisle Boulevard.

Albuquerque police spokesperson Tanner Tixier said that officers headed to an apartment on Tulane around 8:50 a.m. Wednesday on a reported domestic dispute. Tixier said officers made contact with the female victim, who said the man was still inside the apartment. However, officers initially could not make contact with him.

"Officers determined that felony domestic violence charges had occurred and that the male subject has an outstanding felony warrant for his arrest, stemming from a previous domestic violence incident," Tixier said.

A SWAT team then responded to the situation.
