A 32-year-old man who had a standoff with Englewood police last week was in custody at press time.
Joseph Christopher Gaye had barricaded himself inside an apartment in the 3300 block of South Washington Street on the morning of Aug. 22
According to a police report, officers were there to contact a suspect in a felony domestic-violence investigation.
A 21-year-old woman reportedly inside the apartment had left just before police arrived.
When Gaye refused to come to the door, the Englewood’s Tactical Team and police negotiators responded.
Negotiations were eventually successful and Gaye complied with police orders. He was taken into custody without incident. No injuries were reported.
Charges were pending and the investigation was continuing.
