Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Residents at the Sunrise Garden Apartments in the northeast part of the Valley are back in their homes Wednesday morning.

Two apartment buildings were evacuated during the standoff that lasted for several hours.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said they were looking for a man who was wanted in connection to a stabbing that happened a few days ago.

The man slammed a door in police officers' faces, locking himself and his girlfriend inside of an apartment.

SWAT was called in after the man refused to come out. Eventually he surrendered after officers hit the apartment with gas.

The suspect was arrested and is being charged with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon.

The man's girlfriend is not being charged.

Police officials have not released the man's name.
