SWAT responds to domestic situation in Delhi Township
DELHI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - A SWAT standoff in Delhi Township ended after three hours on Friday with a man’s arrest.
The man was charged with aggravated menacing and domestic violence, according to Lt. Joe Macaluso of the Delhi Township Police Department, who said the suspect waved his gun at officers. He said a gunshot was also heard inside the house.
“If he’s coming outside with a firearm and waving it at law enforcement, what’s to stop him from shooting?” Macaluso said.
The standoff ended at 7 p.m. when the suspect was arrested by Delhi Township police.
The suspect was seen handcuffed and loaded on a gurney after the incident.
Macaluso didn’t say if SWAT breached the house or if the suspect had come out on his own.
The incident began when a woman ran from the home and called 911 at a neighbor’s house, police said. Officers arrived at around 3:30 p.m.
Macaluso said the suspect was taken to the Hamilton County jail following his arrest. He could face more charges once he appears in court.
