February 5, 2013 at 10:38 AM

PATERSON, NJ - The situation could have ended in tragedy. A 20-year-old city man armed with a knife had barricaded himself in the bathroom of his 4th Ward home Monday night, while a group of police officers huddled outside the door, according to authorities.

But members of the police department's crisis negotiating team talked the man into giving himself up without incident, said Lt. Richard Reyes.

The incident started at about 9 pm in a home near the corner of E. 23rd Street and 10th Avenue, Reyes said. After a dispute with his mother, the man barricaded himself in the bathroom, according to police. The mother called police and Officer Javier Gutierrez quickly called for members of the Emergency Response Team and Crisis Negotiations unit, Reyes said.

Within an hour, the officers were able to convince him to come out peacefully, Reyes said.

The officers who handled the negotiations were Sgt. Bonato DeAngelis, Sgt. Douglas Romary and Officer Ivan Hicks.

The man, whose name was not released, faces domestic violence charges, police said.

The good news was, the water in the toilet was clean.

The bad news was, it was still water.
