Miami Valley News


FRANKLIN, Ohio (WDTN) – A man is in custody after an hourslong standoff with police and a SWAT team in Warren County.

The incident started around 9:27 a.m. Sunday on Maple Street after officers were called to a home for a domestic situation, according to a release from Franklin Police Chief Brian Pacifico.

Pacifico said that after interviewing the victim, officers went to the scene to take a 49-year-old man into custody for domestic and felonious assault. When officers arrived, the suspect would not come to the door.

Officers called a SWAT team to assist after the victim said the man had a handgun and a large knife, according to Pacifico.

The man eventually came out the home and was taken into custody. He was treated on scene due to gas exposure.

The suspect was taken to Warren County Jail. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, August 17.
