Sandusky police cordoned off a portion of Decatur Street this morning for about an hour after a report of a possible domestic disturbance.
But they called off the effort after determining that the man inside a house at 831 Decatur Street presented no danger to himself or others, police said.
"There's no evidence of a crime. We're leaving," said Sandusky police Sgt. Dana Newell. "We can't make him come to the door."
The 800 block of Decatur was blocked from traffic as members of a special response team were called in at about 10:25 this morning, but police left the scene about 11:30 a.m. on Monday.
The resident in question was involved in "a standoff" years ago, police Chief John Orzech said, which prompted the special precautions on Monday.
