Man charged following standoff, police say
After several hours of negotiations, a man involved in a domestic dispute early Sunday surrendered to police after barricading himself inside his home.
Detective Jeffrey M. Lanigan said at 2:09 a.m., patrols were called to 405 W. Linden St. for a report of a domestic dispute in progress. On arrival, a man involved in the fight, later identified as Joshua E. Theilmann, 34, became uncooperative and refused to speak with the responding officers, visibly upset when he did interact with them, Lanigan said.
After learning that others, including children, were inside the residence, and the possibility there were firearms located inside the home, Lanigan said the patrolmen stopped making attempts to speak with Theilmann. The Special Response Team and negotiators were then called to the scene.
Lanigan said after several hours, Theilmann exited the residence without further incident. All other occupants were removed safely from the residence at that time.
Theilmann was charged with felony second-degree assault. He was arraigned and sent to county jail in lieu of $20,000 cash bail or $40,000 bond. He scheduled to re-appear Dec. 6.
The investigation continues.
