PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A late Friday night domestic violence call escalated into a barricaded standoff with a Marion County SWAT team that ended Saturday morning with the arrest of a 54-year-old man.
The incident unfolded around 10:40 p.m. in the 300 block of NE Crest in Sublimity, authorities said, after they were called when a drunk man hit a woman in the head with a liquor bottle. The 49-year-old woman was gotten out safely, but the man barricaded himself inside.
Over a few hours deputies tried to get the man, later identified as Michael Ducommun, to surrender. When he didn’t, SWAT was called around 2 a.m.
Negotiations continued but the man still refused to surrender. Around 7 a.m., the SWAT team went into the house and took Ducommun into custody.
He was taken to a hospital to be checked out and will later be taken to the Marion County Jail. Authorities said he faces 2 counts of assault, resisting arrest and unlawful use of a weapon.
