Fayetteville police say a barricade situation in the 7600 block of Branchwood Circle ended peacefully Thursday evening.

Police said the incident started after 5 p.m. when police and parole officials tried to serve an order of arrest on 21-year-old "D.J." Terrance Cordell.

When officers arrived, he retreated into a home. At that point, officers set up a perimeter and secured the area.

A child who was inside the home was able to leave safely and was taken to a safe location.

Cordell exited the home and surrendered to police around 9:30 p.m.

Family members were able to convince Cordell to end the situation.

He was not charged in connection with the barricade incident, but he was charged with pre-existing crimes which included; probation violation, driving while licensed revoked and aggressive driving, obtaining property by false pretense, possession of stolen goods, larceny of motor vehicle, and assault with a deadly weapon.

He is currently in jail under $15,300 bond.
