A police standoff situation in Monmouth County has ended peacefully.

The incident happened Friday afternoon at Sam’s Mobile Home Park on Route 36 in Hazlet.

The Monmouth County prosecutor tweeted that police officers responded to a call “for a person in distress,” but the tweet did not elaborate any further.
