Chiefs weekly update

Disturbance Leads to Standoff

On Sunday night, a female contacted police, asking for a civil stand-by. Her husband had been arrested last week after assaulting her. At that time, an Emergency Protective Order had been signed, prohibiting the husband from returning to their residence; however, the female thought that her husband had returned and was at the house waiting for her. Officers responded to the residence in the 700 block of Holly Oak. They searched the house, but her husband was not inside.

A short time after police left the residence, several 9-1-1 calls came into Dispatch, advising that the husband had showed up at the house after we left and assaulted the wife again. She fled the location, leaving him inside. Officers arrived and found that the husband was inside of the house. He initially refused to come outside and armed himself with an axe.

The SWAT Team and Department Negotiators were called to the scene. Negotiators made contact with the male and, a short time later, he agreed to surrender. The male was charged with Violation of a Protective Order and Aggravated Assault (on a Family Member).
