CHESTER, Va. -- A man involved in a domestic situation Tuesday morning in Chesterfield peacefully surrendered to police. He was then ordered to take a mental evaluation.

Police converged on the home, along Ludgate Road in Chester, at about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. They were told a man inside the home had threatened to hurt himself, according to a Chesterfield Police spokesperson.

A woman, who had been inside the home, was able to leave the house.
