HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A man is being treated for his injuries and will go to jail after assaulting a police officer during a domestic violence complaint Monday afternoon.
Two Hamilton Police Officers were dispatched to Ramsey Drive in Hamilton just before 1 p.m. to investigate a domestic violence complaint. The suspect was reported to be armed with a knife.
On arrival, officers recognized the suspect as Jack Vanover, 34. Vanover was wanted on a parole violation from the Ohio Parole Authority and other warrants from Butler County and Hamilton Municipal Court. In addition to the warrants, Vanover was the suspect in the domestic violence.
As the officers attempted to take Vanover into custody, he assaulted the officers causing minor injury to both. Officers deployed Tasers which were not successful. The suspect jumped out of the second story window and fled through a wooded area on foot. Officers gave chase and after approximately one half mile were able to apprehend the suspect on Timberhill Drive.
