    Maine State Police have arrested a man who was involved in a standoff with police at a motel in Portland late Monday night.

    Authorities said Vincent Teruel, 40, checked into a room at Motel 6 after an alleged assault in York on Sunday. When authorities arrived at the motel the next day, Teruel was not in his room.

    After evacuating nearly three dozen guests on the third and fourth floors of the motel as a precaution, police discovered that Teruel had fled the scene.

    Guests were then allowed to go back to their rooms.

    On Tuesday, Maine State Police Public Safety spokesperson Steve McCausland said Teruel had been taken into custody. No further details were released.
