A woman who barricaded herself in a residence in Lancaster Thursday was taken into custody, authorities said.

Special Enforcement Bureau personnel were sent at 1:05 a.m. to the 4500 Block of East Avenue E to assist deputies from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station with a woman who barricaded herself inside the residence, said Deputy Brenda Serna of the Los Angels County Sheriff’s Department.

Some nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution, and crisis negotiators worked to contact the woman. About 7 a.m., the sheriff’s department reported that the suspect was taken into custody “without further incident.”

“The area was deemed safe and all neighborhood evacuees were allowed to return to their homes,” a sheriff’s statement said. The woman’s name was not released.
