Just before 1:00 p.m. Monday, February 11, 2020, Alexandria Police officers responded the 3700 block of Church Street in reference to a subject wanted in connection with sexual assault.

Uniformed officers set up a perimeter around the residence in an attempt to make contact with the suspect.

The standoff that followed lasted a little more than 6 hours where the suspect remained inside the residence and refused to come out.

Members of the Alexandria Police SWAT team as well as the Crisis Intervention Team were called to the scene and remained until the matter was resolved peacefully at approximately 6:35 p.m.

Mario Rue, 44, of Alexandria was taken into custody on an arrest warrant for attempted 1st degree rape.
