MIAMISBURG, Ohio (WDTN) – A manhunt for an abduction and domestic violence suspect that turned into a standoff Thursday afternoon in the 1900 block of East Central Avenue in Miamisburg is now over.

The 55-year-old man surrendered to police just after 7:00 p.m. Thursday.

He was taken to a hospital for evaluation before he will be booked into the Montgomery County Jail.

Police told 2 NEWS this morning the man’s girlfriend told officers her boyfriend assaulted and held her against her will.

Officers spotted the suspect inside his car, but he took off and ended up inside his home where he refused to come out.

Investigators said the man is facing several charges but prosecutors would determine the specifics when they review the case tomorrow.

The man’s identity has not been released.
