Police took three people into custody Thursday morning in San Jose after multiple suspects broke into a home, assaulted residents and prompted an hours-long standoff with officers and tactical teams, police said.

At least one person initially was taken into custody, and two suspects remained inside the home in the 4200 block of Senter Road for nearly seven hours, police said. Four victims were able to escape the home, and it wasn't clear how many, if any, victims were still inside at that time.

SWAT teams responded to the scene and the bomb squad was on standby.

The standoff, which started as a home invasion at about 12:45 a.m., was in the area of Senter Road and San Gregario Way in the city's Hellyer neighborhood.

Senter Road was shut down from Rudd Court to San Ramon Way, but no known evacuations or shelter-in-place orders had been issued.

Some of the victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The suspects will be booked into Santa Clara County Jail on multiple charges, including burglary, assault, false imprisonment and resisting arrest, police said.
