How to tell if you’re in an abusive relationship
A standoff that lasted about 5 hours ended Sunday morning when police arrested a man suspected of domestic violence as he tried to flee an Olathe home, police said.
The standoff began about 2 a.m Sunday when officers responded to a disturbance at a home in the 1200 block of North Purdom Street.
A 37-year-old woman told police that a man she described as her significant other had beaten her, police said. The man remained inside the home and refused to exit, leading to a standoff with police.
Shortly after 7 a.m., the man tried to flee from the rear of the house. However, police took him into custody.
